It looks like a tight schedule to me
by: Gary Wolff

Hi Nop,

Your schedule seems a bit tight, but if you're in good shape, maybe you can climb Mt. Kita-dake in that short time frame.

Most of the info you need is on my Mt. Kita-dake page, including links to both mountain huts you mentioned. And yes, it's a good idea to book the mountain huts in advance to make sure there's space available.

And here's the Kofu to Hirogawara bus schedule for the 2015 climbing season:

Best wishes...

Gary
