From the Kitadakekata-no-koya to the summit of Kita-dake
It’s not so far from the Kitadakekata-no-koya1 to the summit of Kita-dake2. I got so excited whenever I found the summit on the way.
- 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. ↩
- 北岳（きただけ）. "北" means north. Kita-dake is the second highest and one of the most famous mountain in Japan. ↩
