Beautiful ponds and plant life along this trail. Great for families.

I love this hike! Nothing like walking on the rim of a volcanic crater. Takes between 5.5 & 6.5 hours.

Amazing spring hike to the "Eye of the Dragon." To see the eye of the dragon, make the hike from the last week of May or first week of June.

on Mount Hotaka

Mt. Hotaka covered with snow is the one of my favorite winter mountain destination . The degree of difficulty is not high, it is also appreciated to earn altitude with ski lift. You cannot rent mountain gears near this mountain. I strongly recommend you to take a snow-mountaineering course in advance.
