    ※ Because of rain and walking on a mountain stream, the path was so slippery. When I went back down, I walked really fast, so don't refer to my time schedule for your climb. It might take over 3 hours.

Approach to Starting Point

  1. □ Transportation:Car
  2. □ Time to Starting Point:Going there 6 hours by car, and back 4 hours
  3. □ Further Information:From Omiya to Togakushi Camping site
    There's a parking lot for climbers. People who stay at the camping site have to check out by 10:00 the next morning. So, if you want to enjoy both of camping and climbing, you had better move your car out from the camping site to the parking lot for climbers before your climb. But, I didn't do this because I wanted to come back before 10:00 am. That’s why I was in a hurry going down.

My Impressions

This mountain's name is Mt.Takatsuma. Although it is designated as one of the 100 Famous Mountains, it's not well known among climbers because there are so many famous mountains near there like Mt.Hakuba and Mt.Myogi etc, so people choose this climb less often.
When I reached the summit I could see views of the surrounding famous mountains. It was so lucky, because the weather forecast predicted rain all day. I hoped to enjoy the fall colors even if it was going to be rainy, but instead, I was treated to an unbelievable cloudscape at the peak. I was so happy I had the whole place to myself.
