Walk across the wooden suspension bridge of Kappa Bashi for spectacular scenery of mountain peaks and the rushing river below. In the heart of Kamikochi valley, the bridge also offers access to hiking trails that wind through the untouched forested scenery. Enjoy a vista of the magnificent Hotaka mountains from the 36 m (118 ft) long and 3 m (10 ft) wide bridge. Information and visitor centers are onsite, and a three-story cafeteria serves up refreshments in the tourist center.
