615 2016/12/25 Snowshoeing in Kamikochi from Matsumoto
Jane 
CANADA
Hello!
I will be in Matsumoto around Jan 13-15 and would love to get out into the mountains and do some snowshoeing if possible- perhaps in Kamikochi? I'm having a hard time finding out a lot of information online. Any chance there might an independent guide I could go with? Any help would amazing! Thank you so much!

Note of webmaster: Hi, what does "independent guide" mean? If you can pay around 9,000 yen , you can join a guide tour of winter Kamikochi snowshoeing. According to such a company "Little Peaks"' Japanese website, you can join the tour on Jan 13 (if you can't make a reservation in Japanese, I can do instead).
In winter Kamikochi, there is no facility like shops, managed toilets or emergency offices, so a guide is necessary. Norikura is much easier, because it is ski resort and there are snowshoe courses and rental shops, so you can snowshoe by yourself if you don't like a guided tour.
