Can you give me some advice on the Kamikochi to Daikiretto to Yarigatake circuit?
I read your article on your adventure at Daikiretto and was wondering if you could give me some guidance or advice on doing the climb. I'm heading to Japan this October and I'm planning to see the alps and hopefully go up to Daikiretto and Yarigatake. I'm just starting to plan the hike and I'm finding it hard to find info for this particular hike.
I've been to Kamikochi a few years ago but I went in at the end of autumn and I spent limited days there, so this time I want to do a slow paced hike and spend about a week there. Would you mind giving me some advice on how I should go around for this trek? I read on your article it's possible to start at the Shin-Hotaka ropeway, but I think I want to do a circuit and go from Kamikochi, to Daikiretto and Yarigatake, then finish at Shin-Hotaka and spend a night in Takayama. I appreciate any help or advice you can give me, thank you for your time!
