642 2018/2/8 Visit Matsumoto and Kamikochi?
Elisa

Hello,

My friend and I are visiting Matsumoto from April 23th till April 27th. We'd love to do a dayhike in Kamikochi. We read on the site that Kamikochi will open on the 27th of April. But we also read that buses allready drive to Kamikochi from the 17th of April. Is it possible to visit Kamikochi by bus in the days before the 27th of April for a dayhike?

And if that's not an opportunity. Are there more hikes you can recommend in the area of Matsumoto?

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,
Elisa


Note of webmaster: Hello Elisa!

The 27th is a festival celebrating the opening of the mountain for the season, so many people visit from that day, but the mountain will be accessible by bus from the 17th. You and your friend can visit Kamikochi and hike before the 27th. There will still be some snow on the trails (due to the weather and altitude), so just be sure to have proper footwear.

Safe hiking!
