Pond Taisho, which is rather a lake than a pond, is one of touristic attractions in Kamikochi. When it reflects the surrounding woods on water, it is enchanting. When a fog lies over the pond, it is really mysterious.

I think it isn't impossible, but hard for your mother. You can take off the bus at last stop,near by KAPPA-BASHI.There is a beautiful walk along the river. You can enjoy them, using whellchair.
