I am planning a day trip to Kamikochi from Nagano on 6 Nov 2018. However I read that there are no bus services towards Kamikochi after 5 Nov. Are there any other ways to get there?

Hi Donric,

Buses will continue to run to Kamikochi until it closes for the season on November 16th. You can see the bus timetable here on our website. Note that any bus labeled with a dagger (†) or double asterisk (**) will not be running after Nov. 5th.

I hope that helps clarify things.

Hi Blair,

Thanks for the information and clarification. By the way, will there still be any autumn view in Kamikochi during this day since its during late autumn?

Hi Donric,

You’re welcome!

Kamikochi will have passed its peak autumn foliage season, but there should still be some yellowing trees in the forests. In November, the mountain tops should be covered in snow, and there should be frost on trees and grasses in the early morning. It will be much quieter than peak season as well.

I hope that gives you a better idea.
