Mt. Hijiri-dake

Mt. Hijiri-dake stands at a prefecture borderline between the northern Shizuoka prefecture and the southeast Nagano prefecture, locating in the most southern point of the Southern Japan Alps at an elevation of 3,000 m.  A mountain, locating at the most southern point in Japan, at an elevation higher than 3,000 m is Mt. Fuji-yama.  The feminine shape of the mountain stands with grace.  Due to the difficult access to the area, untouched nature still remains there.  Unlike the Northern Japan Alps, this area seems to be still growing.  The forest is covered with deep green and spreads widely.  There are many forests in the area, which resemble European forests.

  1. Iroudo Route

Mt. Hijiri-dake: Elevation 3,013 m

The quickest route to Mt. Hijiri-dake is a course from Iroudo via the Seiko koya Mountain hut (closed), Koke-daira and the Hijiri-daira koya Mountain hut. Many hikers enjoy this route.  However, compared with the northern mountains in the Southern Japan Alps, the trail will not get too crowded even during the busiest hiking season.  Seiko koya Mountain hut used to be accessible by cars or taxi, however, now, cars or taxis can travel only as far as the Shibasawa-gate for now.

The difficult access of the trailhead has made fewer people hike by this route  these days.

Three routes to Mt. Hijiri-dake are introduced here.

Hata-nagi Daiichi Dam ~ Mt. Chausu-dake Trailhead ~ Mt. Chausu-dake ~ Mt. Hijiri-dake round trip
