  • We were a bit worried when there was no one else on our public bus to the Norikura highlands, but relieved to find snow still there and a smattering of skiers still wringing out the season even though...  more »
  • You can enjoy nature throughout the season. In June, the flowers and the spring azaleas are in full bloom. Mt. Norikura still has snow, and the cuckoo and uguisu swell, and the temperature is 10 degrees lower than the plain.

  • 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.
