Originally, we planned to hike up to the summit but the wind was so strong that we could hardly stand still on the ridge. No kidding, it really felt like Typhoons. And it’s chilling to the bone. So, we had to abandon the ascent and...More

Took shuttle bus in Norikura kogen (abt 1300m) and reached Tatami-daira (terminal) at 2700m in about 1 hr. (no other car is allowed, except licensed). Helpful visitor centre staff gave map and advice to attack the summit. The first 30 min was an easy walk,...More

Mt. Norikura on late autumn (5 Replies)
Hi, I'm planning to go to Mt. Norikura on the last day open of this year (31/10/16) For this time bus is less so i have only 2 hrs for hiking. (I'll go to Shin-hotaka first on the same day) Do you think is it okay with just a little time? Is it worth for visiting? And how about Mt. Norikura in really late autumn, Is still stunning like the same? I'll travel alone and I've never hiked before but I'll try in easy trail. Thanks for any help^^

>>For this time bus is less so i have only 2 hrs for hiking. (I'll go to Shin-hotaka first on the same day)<< That is unrealistic as you're gg to Shin-hotaka on the same day. As you've never done hiking before, you'd probably need 4hrs or more to hike to Mt Norikura @3000m and return. Check with the visitor centre in Tatami-daira @2700m on latest weather conditions. There are 1 or 2 smaller hills up there such as the Mt Fuji-mi @2800m, so maybe you can try that if path is not...More

Takayama-Norikura-Shinhotaka itinerary (0 Replies)
Hi, I will be in Takayama on the 20-21th February 2013 and my next destination is Mt. Norikura Kogen. I will be using the Hida-Shinshu 4 days Alps bus pass. Is it possible to head for Mt. Norikura Kogen from Takayama? Or do I need to take a bus from Shin Shimashima instead? I plan to spend a night in Mt. Norikura on the 22nd February. I also plan to head to Shinhotaka Onsen on 23rd February so should I head back to Takayama or Shin shima-shima again for transport to Shinhotaka? If...More

Mt. Norikura descent? (0 Replies)
Is it possible do descent from Kengamine Peak towards Norikura Kogen (in summer)? If so, how long would that take? (It looks like it might be possible judging from http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e6041.html) Does this trail have good views or would it be better simply to walk back and take the bus to Norikura Kogen?
