Getting to Kamikochi
- With just one route into Kamikochi via the Kama Tunnel and no private cars allowed there are limited options for getting in and out of the area. Once in the Kamikochi area you’ll find even less transport which naturally makes walking the best way to explore, both for seeing the wonderful views and for getting to your accommodation or checking out the shops and food spots.While taxis are allowed into Kamikochi, fare rates are high making the bus the best option for getting there. Some companies, including the Alpico Group, offer direct buses to Kamikochi from Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto which take between five and seven hours. For the quicker but pricier option, bullet trains stop at Nagano Station from both Tokyo and Shin-Osaka while express trains run all the way to Matsumoto Station.
