Hello, this is moco* from J-hoppers Hida Takayama Guesthouse!!
I went climbing Mt. Ontake.
We have some mountain that is over 3,000m high near Takayama.
Mt. Ontake is one of the sacred mountains in Japan.
I could see some alpine plants.
They are so small and cute!!
The season for climbing mountain has just started.
We walked on the snow...it was bit scared.
Luckily, I met a "Grouse" on the walking trail.
Finally, we got top of the mountain after 4 hours.
Most of the lakes were still frozen...it was 4℃!!
The weather in the mountain changed many times,
sunny, raining, thunder and snow...!!
So I could enjoy beautiful snow scenery,
sunset, thousands of stars with milky way.
I stayed at the mountain hat is called "Gonoike-goya",
located on the top of Mt. Ontake.
Their meals are all hand made!!
I recommend you to have "Pizza" there.
Next morning, I enjoyed panoramic sunrise view!!
After that, we tried another top of the mountain
through hell's mountain of needles.
I hope you have chance to have climbing mountain here.
Enjoy your summer!!
