The Japanese Alps|Kamikochi|Part 1

“ The area in and around the Kamikochi valley was formed as a result of the eruption of Mount Yake in 1915. It is a popular hiking destination and sees visitors from all over the world. The Japanese are very good hikers and greet you a friendly 'Kunichiwa' along with a polite nodding of the head. By mid-afternoon, it had started to drizzle and the Azusa river looked greener than ever. ”
