A question about camping at Japanese mountain huts

by Sarah
(Switzerland)

Hi Gary,

Thank you for this fantastic site, your information is invaluable.

I have​​ a question about camping at mountain huts. Do you know how they handle the food storage? Is it the same as in the US? Do you need a food-bag and hang it from trees? Or are there special containers?

Thank you very much for your help.

Cheers,
Sarah

No special food provisions for campers @ Japanese mountain huts
by: Gary Wolff

Thanks for your kind words, Sarah.

I'm not aware of any special food provisions for campers @ Japanese mountain huts. Generally speaking, climbers who are camping in tent sites (and are not eating dinner or breakfast in the hut) handle their own food.

Also, I think most mountain huts are above the tree line (no trees), and because of limited space, I guess only about half of the huts have tent sites.

Best wishes...

Gary
