Now that we have entered November, things are really quieting down. Nature is getting ready for its winter sleep with most leaves having already fallen. Likewise, tourists numbers have drastically fallen. There were a few days pretty warm days last week with very sunny days. It was really a good time to experience ‘peaceful’ Kamikōchi with beautiful weather and clear blue, cloudless skies.
Take a look at this trail along the Asusa-gawa River. Empty…
And these empty picnic tables…
Another empty walkway…
With the clouds rolling in, however, the scenery looks a bit different.
Taking a look at the picture above, it already feels cooler.
As you can see, fall in Kamikōchi is quickly approaching its end.
There is only about a week left to visit, and since there are no tourist lines these days, a last minute visit is no problem! See you around.
