From the Kotaro-one junction to the Kitadakekata-no-koya
The ridge is broad to Kitadake-no-kata1. I head for the Kitadakekata-no-koya[^2] with enjoying hiking on the comfort ridge.
- From Shiraneoike-goya to Kotaro-one junction (3/3)
- To the summit of Kita-dake, 2nd highest peak in Japan
- 北岳肩の小屋（きただけかたのこや）. The hut on Kitadake-no-kata. “小屋” is the meaning of a hut. When we call a hut in Japanese, there are some variations of expression. "小屋（こや・koya/goya）", "山荘（さんそう・sanso）", "小舎（こや・koya/goya）", "ヒュッテ（ひゅって・hutte）", "宿舎（しゅくしゃ・shukusha）" and so on. They are all same meanings, the place where you can use for accommodation, but I think there is no obvious difference between them. ↩
