613 2017/3/28 Is Kamikochi accessible before opening ceremony?

Hi!

We are planning to visit Matsumoto in april (probably from april 19th) and we were wondering of Kamikochi park is accessible and nice to walk before the official opening ceremony. Can we go there for one or two daytrips and do some (short) hikes? Will there be lots of snow? And will there be any open facilities (restaurant/toilet) or is everything still closed?

Thank you so much for your reply.
Kind regards from Holland,
Eline


Note of webmaster: Hi Eline-san,
I think the bus & taxis will start operation and some facilities (some hotels, too) will open (or start preparing) April 17th this year. You can hike in mid-April but some snow remains on and along the trails. It is great because it is not busy (Japanese are few, but some foreigners including Asian tour travelers are there).
Take care and good luck,
- Andy
