Kamikochi - uniquely Japan - uniquely alpine

We help people connect with nature and create lasting memories in the Northern Japanese Alps.

Japan is full of beautiful contrast and lives in tension with itself. One of the most beautiful tensions hangs between the booming urban life in big cities and the rest of Japan where a large population live in harmony with nature, enjoying the seasons in rural Japan. You can experience this tension as you travel from urban Japan to the rural (inaka).
