    During this 4-mountain traverse in the Hakuba area, we’ll cross the stunning Ushiro Tateyama mountain range. We’ll go from Mt Karamatsu (2696m) to Mt Goryu (2814m) to Mt Kashimayari (2889m), and the more advanced can also reach the Mt Jigatake summit (2670m).

    This 3-day hike is a great way to get to know the Hakuba area, straddled between the Nagano and the Toyama Prefectures in Japan. This area is very popular among hikers in the summer and skiers in the winter.

    Two long ridges — the Happoo ridge and the Toomi ridge — connect these mountains. During our traverse, we’ll enjoy incredible views of the mountains in this beautiful area of the Japan Alps.

    You need a good fitness level to be able to enjoy these 3 days of hiking. Although the route doesn’t present any technical difficulties, it can be quite challenging, especially if you wish to climb to the Mt Jigatake summit.

    This 4-mountain traverse in the Hakuba area is a great way to discover these beautiful mountains. Contact me now and we’ll start organizing your trip!

    You can also check out some of the other hiking options I offer in this area: hiking to the Mt Shirouma summit and Hakuba’s 3 mounts and Yari Onsen.

    About the Guide


    I'm a JMGA certified hiking guide as well as one of Nagano Prefecture's Official Mountain Guides for North Japan Alps.

    My love for mountains and skiing brought me to live in countries like New Zealand, Canada and Europe (including Chamonix) as a ski instructor and as a tour coordinator for over 10 years.
    In Chamonix I was inspired by the IFMGA mountain guides, who were my mentors and who had a lot of compassions, and I started to aspire to become a guide myself.
    Currently, I live in the village of Hakuba and guiding mainly in the mountains of North Japan Alps.

    My motto is to "have fun safely" and I value the communications I have with clients whilst guiding.

    If you want to feel glad you came at the end of the day, then join me to enjoy the Japanese mountains together!
