Is mid-October too late for Kamikochi to Nakabusa?

by Jess

Hi Gary,

Thanks for sharing such wonderful information on this site!

I'd like to do a 3-4 day hike in the Japan Alps in October. I was hoping for some advice on timing for weather, and on which route to take.

I had the Omote Ginza route recommended to me, but I'm open to other suggestions. I'm currently looking at walking Kamikochi - Yarigatake - Nishidake or Otenshodake - Nakabusa Onsen. Which direction would you recommend for this hike (Kamikochi - Nakabusa)? I thought finishing at the onsen would be nice, but the walk downhill from Enzanso to Nakabusa sounds very steep.

To avoid crowds over the Sports Day long weekend (8-10th October) I was going to start hiking around the 14th or 15th of October. However, I could start as early as the 7th or 8th. Would you recommend starting earlier rather than later in October?

Many thanks for your time.

Jess.

Thanks, Jess.

I'm not familiar with the Nakabusa Onsen, so you might want to post your question in the "Hiking in Japan" Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/9872778764/

Happy trails...
