From the summit of Kita-dake to the Kitadake-sanso

Descent to the col from the summit of Kita-dake1 on the broad ridge. It continues comfort ridge hike until Kitadake-sanso2 with the great view of Nakashirane-san3 and Aino-dake4.


  1. 北岳(きただけ). "北" means north. Kita-dake is the second highest and one of the most famous mountain in Japan. 
  2. 北岳山荘(きただけさんそう). “山荘” 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. 
  3. 中白根山(なかしらねさん). "中" means center. 
  4. 間ノ岳(あいのだけ). "間" means between. Aino-dake is center of Shirane-sanzan, and located "between" Kita-dake and Noutori-dake.
