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.


  1. 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. 
  2. 北岳(きただけ). "北" means north. Kita-dake is the second highest and one of the most famous mountain in Japan.
