Kamikochi, most likely the most pristine area of Japan. Feel fortunate if you are lucky enough to stay at one of the hotels there. No cars allowed. It's awesome. The water is so clean you want to drink it. Bring money though. The souvenirs there are cheap.

If you are driving there I HIGHLY suggest driving over to Takayama. You'll find a cave along the way if you have a guide book. Sorry forgot the name of that cave but it's nice inside.

Continue down to Takayama where they have some of the best Sake Japan has to offer. A very friendly town too. Eat in the area, don't get trapped by the places along the way to the center of Takayama. Lots of delicious food in town.

Been snowing quiet a bit in Japan already.

BTW, there is a "New world in the morning"(somewhat appropriate giving a recent loss): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4NhzKXCFY0
