This highland at around 1500m is surrounded by major mountains in the northern Japan Alps. In the late 19th century, British alpinist Walter Weston explored this area and stimulated mountaineering interest with Japanese and foreigners. The highland has since attracted many climbers, making it a major mountaineering resort and listed a 2-star place in Michelin 2008.

The area around the Kappabashi Bridge is a photogenic place where streams wind through primeval forests of white birch and fir dotted with beautiful ponds. The Tashiroike pond is a marshland looking like a rice paddy field, and nearby Mount Yakedake (2455m) is among the most popular with alpinists. The environment of subalpine zone with sprawling marshland contributes to the rich flora of this area.

今日は雨降ってます。明日から雨は上がる予報。そういえば昨日ニホンザルがでてきました。近寄ると危ないそうです。雨の紅葉も雰囲気でした。

물이 맑다. 새벽에는 사람이 많이 없지만 낮에는 사람들로 인산인해를 이루는 곳 ! 날씨가 좋을때 보는 북알프스 연봉들은 잊을 수가 없다

行きたい人は朝早く行き昼までに帰りましょう。自分は盆に行きましたが朝は登山やトレッキングの人だけなので比較的空いていて良いのですがひと通り満喫し昼過ぎに河童橋まで戻ると一般の(橋まで行き写真撮って帰る)観光客が尋常じゃないくらい増えていて、結果帰りのバス待ち行列がアホじゃないかと思う距離まで出来て(バス乗り場~河童橋まで行列)2時間待ちになりうんざりしました。
