During this 3 day adventure, you will get to climb to the summit of the stunning Mount Hotakadake (3,190m).

Located in the Japan Alps, Mount Hotakadake is an amazing peak. Positioned high in the Hida Mountains, the peak’s summit offers some truly fantastic views. Furthermore, the ascent itself is filled with great spots to enjoy various views as well.

Each day of this trip will be different. For example, on the first day, we will be climbing for only 2 hours, until we reach the Nishiho Sanso, where we will spend the night. However, on the second day, we will be climbing for approximately 10 hours to the summit and down to the Hotakadake Sanso, where we will spend the night. Finally, on the last day, we will spend approximately 6 hours making our way back down the peak.

The climb to the summit of the peak is not overtly difficult. As a result, you don’t have to be a climbing expert to enjoy it. However, you should be in good physical condition. Moreover, the maximum number of people on this trip is two. Hence making the climbing experience less of a group climb, and more of a personalized journey.

There are a number of great peaks you can climb throughout the country of Japan. However, Mount Hotakadake is definitely one of the best. So, if you find yourself visiting the Japan Alps, this 3-day trip will definitely take your breath away. To join me on this trip, please send a request.


Nishiho Sansa for one night and Hotakadake Sanso for one night.

Meeting point

JR Matsumoto Station at 11 o'clock or the Shinhotaka Ropeway Station 2F exit at 1:00 pm.



About the guide

guide profile img

I live in Nagano prefecture, in Japan. Guiding people in the Japanese mountains is for me a great privilege.

I am a certified Ski and Mountain Guide, JMGA, (Japan Mountain Guide Association) as well as a member of the Japan Avalanche Network.

My guiding career evolved from my passion for ski mountaineering.
I worked as an avalanche course instructor for the first time in 2003. Since then, I have logged many years as a trekking and ski guide and avalanche instructor, and yes, I still like my job. I love what I do!

Please contact me if you are interested in a tour in Japan. See you in the mountains!
