Here is Kamikōchi, and is scenic sites in the Azusa river upstream in the southern part of the Hida mountain range of the Nagano Prefecture west and a remote mountainous highland. Above the sea is at the position of 1500 meters. It is thought that the pond is caused here being dammed up Azusa river that had flowed to Gifu Prefecture before by the eruptive activity of the volcano, earth and sand piles up there, and it was born. I did trekking around here about 4km from the Taishou pond to "Kappa bridge" in the foot the Hotaka mountain range. The leaf had been dyed to autumnal tints in some places because it was a season that entered autumn, though it was cloudy skies unfortunately.
Because this region prohibits riding of the private car, nature conservation is still kept.

Hallo Mikou
What a lovely place to be. It looks so peaceful and relaxing and I am sure that is the feeling one get when one spends time around this pond. It is so good to read that vehicles are not allowed and that nature conservation is still kept. The moody atmosphere you captured in the clouds is marvellous. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

good panoramic view of the landscape. good colors of nature. thanks for sharing.
