J-BOND Team woke up early morning yesterday and took 7am local bus from Takayama to Kamikochi in 2-hour ride for one way. They had to change to another bus at Hirayu-Onsen bus stop. It is a tough logistic situation for the tourist, unless you come here for mountain claiming or hiking purpose. Even though you reach the Kamikochi bus terminal stop, you need to take a long-distance walk up to Kappa-bachi (one of the most famous bridge over the River Azusa or Taisho pond.
In spite of total 4-hour bus ride for Takayama - Kamikochi, the team didn't have any regret to visit Kamikochi, where they shouldn't miss for this opportunity, since the team came up to Hida-Takayama City. The team walked in about 10km along the River Azusa. I hope each of team members would come back there again in the future, so that they can recall this-time challenge in their life.
