  • It is Japan's best hiking trails. You can also, of course, climbing. I felt you can go casual as to place more than 2,000 m above sea level, but it's very luxurious. I think just the changeable mountain weather, so proper preparation is necessary. I went to the Toyama Prefecture from Nagano Prefecture. People from there to room was quite crowded Taikan peaks along the way, but at least, I was surprised. Price is less than 10000 yen from Toyama station from Sawa. I think people feel high and may have come when fresh snow Otani, summer, and fall foliage can be fun, so I was cheap enough.

  • Went from Nagano through Ogidzavu at the end of the season for the integrated ticket. Schedule of all transports compiled very competently-all. Note: the complexity of tracks *-it's almost vertical climb on snow (seats failed to the waist), moving rocks and slippery rock crumbs-faster specified time will NOT. It turns out that without ' cats ' on these trails in November it was impossible to go

  • In preparing to travel this path. Recommend coming early to the sides by from cities Kageyama cinema or from Shinano Omachi station side suggested to stay at Toyama City prior to the early members travel to send the other side. Based on size bags to travel here as he suggested. He beat a path, with brochures in Thailand Three-way car. I went in late October All of this leaves change color in the day of the rainy weather, but it has another victim of fun food, each station will have its sales. Not to worry, but just held good. Walking at least 6-8 hours to finish this trip with Paul Onsen hotel will not hurry.
