Mt. Norikura is the collective name for the mountains that rise in the southern part of the Hida Mountains (Northern Alps), including 3,026m-tall Kengamine, the main peak, which straddles between Matsumoto, Nagano Prefecture, and Takayama, Gifu Prefecture. You definitely will love the landscape decorated with the autumn leaves, as well as vast alpine meadows in Kuraigahara and Tatamidaira.
