​Thanks, Kenny.

I’m not aware of any temperature data for Mt. Jonen-dake, but for reference purposes, the average low temperature in October for the nearby (much lower) city of Matsumoto is 8.4°C​:,_Nagano#Climate​

Anywhere in Japan’s alpine country, October is when the temperatures begin to drop precipitously and when snowfalls begin to be expected, so when you consider that the average *HIGH* temperature atop Mt. Fuji is already below freezing (​, I think you can reasonably expect it to be fairly cold atop Mt. Jonen-dake in October.

Also, as you may have already discovered, linked from the bottom of my Mt. Jonen-dake page, offers a 6-day forecast for the summit of Mt. Jonen-dake.
