Mt. Kaikoma-gatake

Mt. Kaikoma-gatake, the main peak of the Kaikoma Mountains is located at the northwest of Yamanashi prefecture. Trails to the mountain, known from the past as a place for mountain worship, had been developed from various directions but mainly from the Nirasaki area. The local folks call Mt. Kaikoma-gatake Mt. Higashi-East-Koma-gatake, whereas people call Mt. Kisokoma-gatake, the main peak of the Central Japanese Alps, as Mt. Nishi West-Koma-gatake. It is also called Mt. Shiro-white Kuzure-san due to the white color of the granite. The view from the summit is fantastic. The shape of the mountains can be admired from Chuou- high way or JR Chuou railway. The Kaikoma Mountains consists of Mt. Nokogiri-dake, Mt. Kaikoma-gatake, Hayakawa o’ne, Mt.Houou three mountains, and Yashajin pass and the altitude is about 2,700m to 2,800m. There are a few different approaches to the summit. The shortest approach starts from Kitazawa pass, the longest from Kuroto o’ne, and a ridgeline walk from Houou three mountains. For experts, a route from Mt. Nokogiri-dake, the challenging rocky ridgeline walk, is popular.
