Amo Forest

Even though Amo Forest  is no where nearly as famous as other major spots in the area like Kamikochi, the autumn leaves there are no less spectacular. This year, thanks to relatively cold weather, the leaves change color a little earlier than usual. Treat yourself to a walk in this beautiful and mysterious Japanese beech forest. According to a tour guide in the area, the best time to see the autumn colors in Amo this year will be early October, which is now!

There is a shuttle bus running from Takayama to Amo on every Saturday, Sunday or public holiday until Oct 25, and reservation is needed (3,600 yen ).

10.30 Takayama -> 12.10 Amo 
16.20  Amo -> Takayama 

Nohi Bus Center for reservation: 0577-32-1688
