  • Late last month, the volcano Akita-komagatake climbed on the overnight bus trip. Is going from Tokyo to Morioka bus, Morioka tazawako station, JR from to. Tazawako station from bus to hachigōme. Tazawako station was from the Shinkansen bullet train. Under clear blue skies, and great hiking. Amida pond area at day the big baked sand dicentra was at their best. Hyakumeizan flowers indeed. It was a great mountain.

  • The mountains have numerous mountains in Akita, Akita-komagatake also represents Akita. Elevation 1637 m is known as a treasure trove of alpine plants including dicentra. Is usually use the bus up in the summer, but from holiday village near the beech forest, tried climbing through sasamori. Bush still out good prospects sasamoriyama is inspiring stuff. In early August, dicentra was over, climb from the foot of the mountain is exceptional. To the papillary yamakata surface ridge, so that can go along with the challenge now, as it seems.

  • Heat attack. 1st time and. Ensure good weather. In the 誘wanakute with luxury transportation is also within this mountain is. Leaving Tokyo station in the morning Komachi. Walk past the 11:00 and right before one's eyes tazawako Lake blue. Grilled Mori mountain scree is past the peak at dicentra is here and there. On the way back in the ARPA top lots bathed in hot springs. While watching the tazawako Lake blue into White Springs. Tokyo station arr. 20:30. ARPA stop bus ride from 8, and in some cases, organised from nyuto Onsen bus. Non-stop 200 yen higher. Of course hot springs is the ideal. I did not get accommodation in Nice. But can one day!
