My Impressions

Mt. Nyoho is one of the 200 most Famous Mountains in Japan and is located in Nikko City. Nikko is a small town, but is famous as a world heritage site. It has big mountains, hot springs and beautiful sightseeing spots.
As for the mountains, There is Mt. Shirane and Mt. Nantai, these are next to Mt. Nyoho. Aside from Mt. Nyoho, all of the other mountains have been designated as being among the 100 most Famous Mountains of Japan. Mt. Taro (also part of this range) is listed among the 300 most Famous Mountains in Japan. Anyway, there are a lot of attractive mountains and climbing courses. I think Mt. Nyoho is also worthy of inclusion among the 100 Famous Mountains in terms of it's height and scenic views.
I climbed this mountain to check the path and conditions in advance of January's climb with my mountain climbing club. I will be taking the role of leader for the team for that climb, so I needed to determine in advance, suitable locations at which we will be able to set up our tents. Because it will be very difficult to complete this climb in one day when it is covered with lots of snow so we will need to camp overnight.
Despite the fact that I couldn't enjoy the beautiful view when I reached the summit because of the bad weather, I didn't mind. Because I know you can never experience every aspects of a mountain, even if you spend a lifetime climbing it. On this occasion, due to the bad conditions, I got to see the mountain covered in snow. If the weather had been good, I would have been able to see the scenery but wouldn't have been able to enjoy the snow. I hope I'll be able to see the fabulous scenery when climbing in January.
