Mt. Myoko

Map number 18 Description number 33 Mt. Myoko is about a 4 hour drive from my house. My plan was leave home early, hike Myoko, and then head over to Mt. Hiuchi, sleep in my car overnight, hike Mt. Takatsuma in the morning, then head home. It didn't quite work out that way, not because... Continue Reading →

Mt. Asama

Map number 19 Description number 43 Mt. Asama is a highly active volcanic peak that is "enter at your own risk" for hikers. But you can still hike around the crater, and the scenery is quite peaceful. I rode my Harley to this hike. It was about a 3 hour ride each way. My plan... Continue Reading →

Mt. Akagi (1&2)

Map number 20 (also includes Tsukuba) Description number 40 I made 2 attempts at this hike. The first was early in the season and I rode my motorcycle. By the time I got to the trail head it was late in the day and getting cold. I decided to head back home and just make... Continue Reading →

Mt. Tsukuba

Map number 20 (also includes Akagi) Description number 44 This hike confused me because their is another peak called Mt. Nantai on the same ridge line. I originally thought that there were two Hyakumeizan's right next to each other but as it turns out, the Hyakumeizan Mt. Nantai is different. You'll also find that there... Continue Reading →

Mt. Kita/Mt. Aino

I think they changed the map number, I downloaded map 41 to get Kita/Aino, but it looks like it's now map 42, and map 41 is for Kiso-Komagatake, Utsugi, and Ena. So I have 2 different map number 41s, but you should get maps 41 and 42. Kita is description number 80, Aino is description... Continue Reading →

Mt. Kai-Komagatake/Mt. Senjo

Map number 41 Kai-Komagatake is description number 77, Senjo is description 78 For this hike, the road to Kitazawa is not open to the public, so like most of the hikes in the Minami Alps, you have to take a bus. I think that you might be able to take the bus from Ashiyasu to... Continue Reading →
