Asahi-dake・Yukikura-dake

 

The peak in the foreground is Mt. Yukikura、 The peak in the back is Asahidake

 

Mt. Asahi-dake is the northernmost peak of the Northern Alps with an elevation in the 2,000m range. Though the mountain is quite large, it somehow appears feminine and forgiving. The bountiful variety of flowers blooming around the mountain’s ponds are as numerous as those of Mt. Shirouma-dake. However, it is somewhat disappointing that few people make the trip out here. The trail from Mt. Asahi-dake down to Ogawa Onsen is often used as a trail to the Tsugami Shindo trail, but if you use the Renge Onsen trailhead to descend down to Ogawa Onsen, you can enjoy the many alpine plants and hot springs along the way.

 

Mt. Yukikura-dake, has a higher elevation than Mt. Asahi-dake and offers more spectacular views. However, despite being included on the list of Japan’s 200 Famous Mountains, it is unfortunately only considered a mountain for passing through.

A-Basic  course sorted by trailheads

B‐Variation courses from Mt. Shirouma-dake sorted by experience and physical strength

  1. Yukikura-dake - Asahi-dake Route
  2. Tsugami Shindo New Trail Route

Asahi-dake:Elevation 2,417m Climbing
Yukikura-dake:Elevation 2,610m Climbing


Mt. Asahi-dake is the starting point of the Tsugami Shindo trail that stretches all the way to the Japan Sea. However, this trail is long and challenging, so according to a volunteer who maintains one of the mountain shelters along the trail, currently only about 50 people hike it annually. The general Mt. Asahi-dake hiking course travels back and forth between Renge Onsen. If you want to hike it as a set with Mt. Yukikura-dake, one option would be to ascend Mt. Yukikura-dake from Mt. Shirouma-dake and continue on to Mt. Asahi-dake, and from there descend to Renge Onsen. Currently, few people climb both Mt. Asahi-dake and Mt. Yukikura-dake, which may be why there is a good chance you will encounter a rock ptarmigan. If you have experience descending from Mt. Shirouma-dake to Hakuba Oike, I recommend taking the course from Mt. Shirouma-dake to Mt. Yukikura-dake to Mt. Asahi-dake descending to Renge Onsen. This course is guaranteed to double, or even triple, your memories of Shirouma.
