Mt. Aka-dake as a day trip

by Christos Dimitrakakis
(Tokyo, Japan)

Aka is actually quite convenient to get to from Tokyo. A day trip is feasible at a reasonably fast pace. There is no need to carry a lot of water, as there are plenty of huts with fresh water to drink from or refill bottles. A big plus is that most of them are equipped with onsen: I took advantage of the one near the bus stop to have a bit of a rest and a meal while waiting for the bus.

Parts of the path are quite rocky, so you need to be nimble-footed to maintain a reasonable speed. The last part is on moderately steep rock, secured with chains, but probably tricky when wet.
