Hi Elly,

Thanks for your questions. I’ve answered them below:

1) Alpico Kotsu runs a direct bus between Shinjuku and Kamikochi. You can see more information here.

2) Reservations can be made through their website (linked above).

3) For a map of the Kamikochi area, see here. The trails around the park are well-marked so you will have no trouble finding your way between Taisho and Myojin Ponds.

4) There is a baggage storage service at the Kamikochi bus terminal that charges between 350 to 600 yen depending on the size of your bag.

Let me know if you have any questions.
