Vibrant sights from up high and above

Representing the highest peak in the central alps, Mount Kiso-koma (Kiso-koma-ga-take) stands proudly at 2,956 meters tall and provides many colorful sights from mid to late October when traversing along its rugged ridge lines.

Thanks largely to its high altitude, this majestic peak offers a great sneak preview to Japan's vibrant autumn colors well before they reach most major towns and cities.

Situated within the Kiso District of Nagano Prefecture, this peak is easily accessible via cable car providing a convenient escape for anyone wanting to get up into the mountains.
