    I want to climb. But not sure. Walking down the mountain is like. However, it is not equipped. It was in kurmayama climbing. Trek it is might be good. Car lift ride goes to the mouth area, and I could see cars on the mountain in front of. So do not feel far away. May lift up near the Summit, but we aimed to climb on foot, trekking. Along the way, I imagined various Highland plant. I'm very cute. My head hurts my younger son was a little put off longer. Then... were... rain! Mountain weather is changeable, so everyone is a suspect. Wait to finally get to the shelter soaked to the skin, clear the keep. Yahoo weather is so active during. In a pattern apparently valet, Yahoo Weather, ensuring happy Climbers guide to 1:00 PM (lol), finally vindicated the rain. It's just a short distance from there to CHOW. Quickly climb up the long-awaited shrine. It looks good on the way home and car Yama was past volcanic activity. Seems to be where you can see its traces, so immediately from I and tourism. Indeed, I hear all the rocks, Japan's landscape like. This is the Alps?! And it is much impressed. Back came down in the lift. Feeling than I thought it was overpriced, but turn off the wind, through the clouds was also in a difficult situation, it feels good. Go to training, return to lift using the experience and fun area and satisfy both ideal was a look back at the.

    Was without the fog lifted but unfortunately you won't see a sea of clouds you are looking for a lift to the top of Mt. car was happy to passengers, enjoying the mountain in the early morning. Also open early in the morning despite foot and lift Kashiwa toilets as clean and secure. Note even though summer kurumayama Kogen morning lower temperatures (visits during peak temperature is 16 degrees), long sleeves and pants in the windbreaker made of cold could do better and. Tateshina, FYI, is lodgings of kurumayama Kogen, 4:00 advanced gate road from route 484 through the 杜鵑 Gorge ago the departure, the shortest route, but at night we recommend that advanced the Venus line dark before the dawn route 484, also from the narrow width of the road is somewhat circuitous.

Where to stay in Chino

Chino itself possesses a few accommodations, most of them unfussy hotels with onsite communal bathhouses (using geothermal waters, a real draw of the area), located close to the main train station. Many opt instead to stay at Suwa to the north, where lakeside lodgings are a little more upmarket and well maintained. Alternatively, visitors to Chino choose to stay to the east of the main city center, where hot spring resorts sit in secluded, scenic locations in the highland areas.
