Guide Searching

Toshitaka Takebayashi

The greatest allure of the Japan Alps is how they change throughout the four seasons!

I was born and raised at the foot of the Japan Alps in Gifu Prefecture, and I became fascinated with mountaineering after climbing Mt. Ontake on a school trip in junior high school. I continued to climb mountains as a personal hobby, but I always felt that it was strange the world sees mountain climbing as dangerous, so in my late-30s, I decided to become a mountain guide in order to promote safe and fun mountain climbing. Currently, I am a mountaineering guide, but I am working hard to someday become a climbing guide! I have climbed all of Japan’s most famous 100 mountains. I have also climbed countless varieties of routes, including climbing Mt. Yatsugatake and Mt. Nishihotaka-dake every year in the dead of winter and ice climbing on Mt. Yatsugatake. I am especially experienced in the mountains of the Mino region, including Mt. Ontake, Mt. Ena-san, and Mt. Ibuki-san, regardless of season.
