Is it possible to get mountain rescue insurance around Murodo or Tateyama?
Thank you for putting such a fantastic website! I don't live in Japan and it really helped me last year, and it's definitely helping me plan for this year's traverse of the Northern Alps.
I was wondering if you knew whether it's possible to get a mountain rescue insurance around Murodo or Tateyama. I will hike from Murodo to Kamikochi, and my private health insurance does not cover mountain or any sort of rescue.
Last year, I bought my insurance at a vending machine in Kamikochi and registered my hike at the welcome center, but this year, I won't have time to first go to Kamikochi and then make my way north all the way to Toyama, and finally Murodo.
Any ideas about what I should do?
