Mt, Yake is active volcano and not too hard to climb that's why even if it's beginner, you can go one day trip from Kamikochi.
Fortunately it was snow around the peak last night, we could see beautiful autumn leaves and peak coverd with snow.
We also could see wild monkey in the mountain.
They are used to people so never afraid us, really cute!!!
It will be being closed in Kamokochi during winter season but you can go Mt, Yake even in winter.
Winter mountain equipment is necessary and professional skill is required.
Actually I've never been there but I will definitely try it someday near future!!!
