Last time I have shared my journey in Nagoya City, Shirakawa-go, Takayama and Hirayu. You can view it here. After having a relaxing night in the hot spring hostel, we went to the famous tourist spot nearby- Kamikochi.
Kamikochi offers some of Japan's most spectacular mountain scenery and it is one of the most scenic spots in the Chubu region. It is also a part of the Chubu Sangaku National Park.
Taisho Pond, Tashiro Pond, Kappabashi and Myojin Pond are some of the popular attractions in Kamikochi. This time we hiked the trail along Azusa River from Kappabashi to Myojin Pond, it is a mostly flat terrain and it was very relaxing.
Here is where we got out of the car.
We started hiking here!
The whole area was covered with virgin forests of birch and Japanese larch trees, and Japanese hemlocks. It felt so different from the hiking trails in Hong Kong.
We discovered that it was also a popular camping site here.
There are also some monkeys climbing on the trees on our way. It appeared that they were not afraid of people.
Don't forget to take a picture with the Myojin Bridge when you get there.
Many people were worshiping at the shrine when we got there.
Finally, we arrived Myojin Pond.
At last, I want to share some delicious food with you. We went to an izakaya to have our dinner.
First, we had a fresh vegetable salad as the appetiser.
Followed by an assorted sashimi set.
It was a must to taste chicken wings in Nagoya.
The Potatoes taste very good.
Bibimbap, made me mouth-watering!
I think I will just stop here, hope you have enjoyed reading it. I will introduce the famous tourist spot - Tateyama Kurobe in my next post. Remember to follow me @htliao if you want to see more posts from me.
