On Friday I visited Mitake, where I used to paddle a few years ago.

On Saturday we woke up at 6am. We were driven to Sawando, a bus station to Kamikochi.
The drive was a little longer, two hours. We arrived at Sawando at 9am.

We take a bus here. On the way here it was drizzling, but finally we got the blue sky.


We started walking at 10:05.

Kappabashi, a famous viewing spot.

1 hour walk to Tokusawa.

while the standard duration is 2 hours.

Early lunch.

I like curry with rice here.

After lunch we started climbing at 11:41 to Mt. Chogatake.

Steep trekking,

which takes us to the mountain efficiently,

and arrived at Mt. Nagagabe at 13:56 in 2 hours 15 minutes while the standard duration is 3 hours 45 minutes.

From here we enjoyed the nice view of colored leaves.

This is awesome.

Beautiful pound.

Tadpoles were swimming.

I was afraid the temperature goes down.

We reached to the ridge line.

Very rich views with Mt. Yarigatake and Hotaka summits.

Arrived at Mt. Chogatake at 14:45. We slowed down, but arrived in 45 minutes, while the standard duration was 1 hour.

We enjoyed the nice view of North Japan Alpine mountains.

The camp site was a little busy, but enough to find a good location.
