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.

Kappa Bashi Reviews
上高地と言えば河童橋 ここからの景色は最高です 写真スポットになっているため たくさんの観光客で賑わっています。 more »Speaking of Kamikochi, kappa bridge The scenery from here is the best because it is a photo spot, so it is crowded with a lot of tourists.
木の吊り橋なので、大勢の人が歩いてると少しだけ揺れてました。 ちょっと遠目に吊り橋と周りの景色を眺めるといいかな。 でも、人は多いですけどね。 more »Because it was a wooden suspension bridge, it shook only a little when a lot of people were walking. It would be nice to see a suspension bridge and the surrounding scenery in the distance. However, there are a lot of people.
