  • If you take the first bullet train from Tokyo Station, you can start climbing at about 9:15 if you have a good route bus and the ropeway is not crowded. If you buy a set ticket at the tourist association counter in Kamige Kogen Station, it's a good deal, and you don't have to line up at the ropeway ticket office. In addition, the climbing course at this time of year is a mix of summer road and snow valley. There are many traverses, so it's better to have more eisen and an ice-ax than a simple eisen for safety.

  • I didn't go skiing, i just went sightseeing in the snow mountain. It is 2,060 yen for the round trip. It is out at about three minutes intervals, so there is no need to run to the entrance. There were very few skiers on board, so we didn't feel any way away from wearing ski wear. The snow scene seen from the gondola was a masterpiece because there were few opportunities to see snow this year. It was a shame that we couldn't get on the lift at the top (it seemed to be for skiers only).

  •  It takes about 12 minutes to arrive by bus (440 yen one way) from Yuhiso Onsen Town. There is also a café and ramen corner. At this time of year, skiers arrive at the summit station in about 20 minutes to ride the ropeway. The Tanigawa Mountain Range was a little clouded, but i was able to enjoy the wonderful view of the snowy mountain.
