Mt. Tateshina-yama

This is a single peak mountain, locating at the north edge of the Yatsu-gatake Mountains. The elevation is 2,531 m. This is a double layered volcano for which the base is a stratovolcano and the second layer is a bell-shaped volcano. The shape resembles that of Mt. Fuji and is called Suwa-fuji. When seen from Mt. Senjyo-ga-take in the South Japan Alps, it may be mistaken as Mt. Fuji even though it is in the wrong direction. There is a crater at the summit and large and small rocks, creating a savage landscape, however, there is nothing to block the sight and the view is phenomenal. Tateshina-sanso Mountain stands at Shougun-daira and Tateshina hut stands at the summit. There are many hikers in the summer season. The stars shown in the night sky can be enjoyed. It is also an impressive view when looked at from Shirakaba-lake, a famous resort.

Route Guide

A-Basic  course sorted by trailheads

  1. 7th Station Route
  2. O-gawara Touge Route

B. Variation courses sorted by experiences and physical strength

Kita-yatsu-gatake Mountains (Mt. Tateshina-yama): Elevation: 2,531 m

7th station trailhead, O-gawara touge pass, Ryuugen bridge, and Suzuran pass can be used as entrances to Mt. Tateshina-yama. More people choose to start from 7th station trailhead or O-gawara pass by driving their own cars because of the bad access via the use of public transportation. If you use 7th station trailhead, you will ascend and descend the same trail. If you start from O-gawara pass, you can make it a loop trip by descending via Tenshoji-hara on the way back.

The trail from 7th station-trailhead and another from O-gawara pass meet at Shougun-daira. From there, the trail becomes rocky to the summit. There is a zone requiring use of chains. Caution must be employed especially when descending. From Suzuran pass, the trail becomes rocky near by the summit.
