Mt Norikura is located at the southern end of the Japan North Alps. This mountain is 3,026 meters above sea level, the 19th highest mountain in Japan. Norikura means a saddle on a horse. Like other beautiful mountains in Kamikochi, you can access this mountain easily from Takayama and Matsumoto.

Tatamidaira is 2,702 meters above sea level. The slope to the summit was rocky and gravelly. But you can climb in 90 minutes.
