The “High Bocchi Plateau” in Shiojiri City, Nagano Prefecture is a mountain with an altitude of 1,665m.If the weather is nice, you can see Mt. Fuji and Lake Suwa.The sea of clouds is also beautiful depending on the weather conditions.It is called the sacred place in the movie “Your Name.”It is a very popular shooting spot for photographers.
I have visited the High Bocchi Plateau many times, but when I arrived there, there were a few times when I couldn’t see anything because the fog was in front of me.The temperature is low even at the end of summer and the wind is very strong, so it is a very cold place, but the sight of Mt. Fuji’s silhouette gradually rising as the dawn comes is very wonderful and impressive.Especially before dawn, you can take pictures at the same time as the night view of Lake Suwa, so it’s very beautiful.
The above picture is the scenery of Lake Suwa, which was taken in the high Bocti Plateau at around 1 am in October 2019.It was early October, but it was cold like midwinter.The glittering night view was beautiful.

Senjojiki Curl is a treasure trove of alpine plants. In the summer, pretty alpine plants bloom on the curls, and in autumn, the entire mountain surface is colored with autumn leaves.Winter is a pure white winter landscape.Many climbers and tourists visit in search of magnificent scenery that changes with the seasons.The autumn leaves season was so popular that the line waiting for the shuttle bus, which departs early in the morning, is formed from midnight.
Misha Kaike is a small pond that is said to have been drawn by Japanese painter Kaiki Higashiyama.The lake is so acidic that no fish can live in it, so the surface of the water is quiet and the scenery looks like a mirror.I took it in the early morning, and it was a beautiful scenery with a hair storm on that day.
“Odori Hidden Waterfall” is a waterfall located at the top of the Shibu River in the Yokoya Valley.Chatsula moss, which lives in acidic water, is growing in clusters, and the contrast between the blue of the water of the waterfall, the green of moss, and the red of the rocks is a highlight.Autumn leaves usually start around late October.
The fall of the waterfall is about 25 meters.Ushigataki falls through a granite rock with a roaring sound in an emerald green waterhole with a transparent bottom.It was a very mysterious and soothing scenery.
It was a wonderful landscape where the fallen leaves of orange and minecarts made me feel the melancholy of autumn.The scenery with fallen leaves all over the railroad track was great, but it seems that you can shoot a tunnel of autumn leaves a little earlier.The speed of the truck is very slow, so it’s easy to shoot, but in reality it passes by in a moment, so personally it was more interesting to take a picture than to see it in real life.
