  • Because there is a private car restriction, I go by bus on the way. You can also enjoy the view from the car window. There seem to be a lot of people who are equipped to climb the mountain, but the plateau which got off the bus is comparatively easy to walk. However, because the wind is strong and the temperature is low, a moderate feather cloth is necessary.

  • Very beautiful place far from tourist trap. Many small beautiful treks are available. Easy to go to Norikura submit from here too. Kamikochi and many beautiful natural onsen with nature view is accessable by bus from here too. I like this place very much. It is so beautiful that I forgot to take any picture.
  • It takes less than 60 minutes to go to play from Matsumoto. The view is beautiful. Forget the city. I will re-report the bad owner. It's too bad. If you don't want to be seen, cover it up. The user is the most annoying. Rebuttal, if you have a comment please put. Oops norikura highland. It is a curse of the owner authority of the registration photograph again before the tongue dries, too. I'm a little runaway. A little, at least, isn't it. Norikura Kogen? It is a double link to the thing studio of the norikura good one. Duplicate? Norikura Kogen is also a name on the map. If it's unique, it'll be annoying to other Google users. Monopoly on Google reported with Mazui. Poor management is a problem, I do not know how to deal with. Here also leaves the owner's curse. Do you want to be honest with rice and delete it? It is a curse. It's right. In reason, it is a translation that the registration of Norikura Plateau is deleted. The owner is not good.
