Shirakawa-go to Kamikochi in January 2019/11/10 02:32
Is there any transport available from Shirakawa-go to Kamikochi in January. I'm trying to search around but can't really find much info for this. I know they're located within reasonable proximity to each other, but regarding transport, that's about all I know.

Kamikochi is closed in January. There are buses from Shirakawago to Takayama. And there are buses from Takayama to Matsumoto which stop relatively close to the entrance of Kamikochi. You can see a bus map here:

Hi!

You might be having a problem because Kamikochi is officially closed in January.
http://www.kamikochi.org/

It officially closes 11/15

You can go to Nakanoyu since it is outside the park and there are some expensive snow shoeing trips to Kamikochi, but I can't remember there starting location.

Good luck!

Yes Kamikochi is officially closed in the Winter- aware of that. We are planning to hike it in Winter- have climbing and hiking experience 20 odd years.

Okay, so Shirakawa-go to Takayama and then Takayama to Matsumoto. I believe the accommodation can pick us up from Matsumoto. Thanks for the response, appreciate that.
