I always use your stories, photos, and videos for hiking in Japan

by Grace
(Tokyo, Japan)

Hi. I am so glad to find you on Facebook. I always use your stories, photos, and videos for hiking in Japan. It's very important for me coz I started climbing mountains by myself.

Are you still living in Japan? If yes, I am sure you are still climbing mountains.

I started climbing mountains about a year ago and I was wondering about following the Hyakumeizan (日本百名山, Japan's 100 famous peaks) and some nice traverses likes Shirouma-dake and Yari-ga-dake to Oku-hotaka-dake.

My challenger plan is to start climbing Mt. Kasagadake from Shin-hotaka Onsen (I know there is free car parking there) and then going to Kurobe-goro, and then Mt. Washiba and Mt. Kurodake and then Mt. Yakushi-dake. Depending on my fitness and the weather, I'm thinking of doing it in a week also. And maybe I wanna end in Mt. Tateyama.

I don't know if the all huts are open in early July, or some open in middle July. I will carry my tent and maybe 15 to 20 kg in my backpack. I walk slowly but I have resistance. I can walk all day (12 hours). Thank you. You are helping me.

My pleasure, Grace. Yes, I'm still here and planning a solo trek up Nishinotori-dake in the Southern Japan Alps in August. Best wishes with your rather ambitious hiking plans, and pls. let me know if you need a good tour guide. :-)

Speaking of the Hyakumeizan, you might be interested in this series of columns written by an American woman who's been climbing them for 9 yrs. and now is only 9 peaks away from reaching her goal: http://www.outdoorjapan.com/magazine/column_stories/11
