Regarding Kamikochi’s 2021 Opening

This year, Kamikochi will officially open to the public on April 27th of this year, after the Kama Tunnel, which grants access to the park via buses and taxis, opens as scheduled on April 17th, as usual.

The Opening Festival will be cancelled this year due to measures being taken to combat the spread of COVID-19. In its place, a smaller ceremony involving only locals, will be held to offer prayers for safety in the coming year as well as 2020.
