Southern Yatsu-gatake Mountains(The highest peak Mt. Aka-dake)

Yatsu-gatake Mountains is the name for a large group of dormant volcanoes, locating in the central east of Nagano prefecture and the north of Yamanashi prefecture.  It is said that the name comes from the fact that eight peaks can be spotted from the base of the mountains.  The main peak is Mt. Aaka-dake.  Many hikers visit the mountain, enjoying the great view throughout the year.  The name “Aka” is after the reddish brown color of the mountain, rusted over the ages.  Yatsu-gatake Mountains is divided at Natsuzawa pass to Kita-yatsu-gatake (Northern Yatsu-gatake) and Minami yatsu-gatake (Southern Yatsu-gatake).  The main peak Mt. Aka-dake sits in Minami-yatsu-gatake Mountains, a powerful and rocky mountain area.  On the other hand, Kita-yatsu-gatake Mountains has forests, ponds, and mosses and hikers consider this area soft and tender.

:Elevation 2,899m

There are some options to reach the summit of Mt. Aka-dake.  It is accessible from all directions.  The most popular route is the course from Minoto to Jizou o’ne via Gyoja koya Mountain hut, or to Bunzaburou o’ne via the hut.  If you are a fast hiker, it can be a one day hike. The route from Minoto-guchi to Okoya o’ne is another popular course, as well as Somazoe o’ne on the east slope, Kenzakai o’ne and Shinkyoji o’ne.

A route from Mt. Gongen-dake, locating in the south of Mt. Aka-dake, has challenging ups and downs but some prefer this route.  If you approach from Mt. Kita-yatsu-gatake, hike the main ridgeline via Mt. Iou-dake from Natsuzawa pass.
