From the Hotaka-dake hut to Karasawa-dake

Ascent to Karasawa-dake1 in order to stay a campsite of the Kitahotaka hut2. However I gave up to go there but I changed destination to Karasawa3 via the Hotaka-dake hut4 though I intended to go there. Because the trail from Karasawa-dake to the Kitahotaka hut was steep and long.


  1. 涸沢岳(からさわだけ). One of the mountain which consists of Hotaka peaks(穂高連邦). 
  2. 北穂高小屋(きたほたかごや). “北” is meaning of north. This hut is located behind Kitahotaka-dake(北穂高岳・きたほたかだけ) when you go from Karasawa-dake. “小屋” is meaning of hut. When we call hut in Japanese, there are some variations of expression. “小屋”, “山荘”, “小舎”, “ヒュッテ”, “宿舎” and so on. They are all same means the place where you can use for accommodation, but I think there is no obvious difference between them. 
  3. 涸沢(からさわ). One of the most famous place in Northern Japanese Alps especially in its autumn color. Karasawa has a curl and two huts. A huge campsite in Karasawa curl and hundreds of tents in high season. 
  4. 穂高岳山荘(ほたかだけさんそう). “山荘” is meaning of hut. When we call hut in Japanese, there are some variations of expression. “小屋”, “山荘”, “小舎”, “ヒュッテ”, “宿舎” and so on. They are all same means the place where you can use for accommodation, but I think there is no obvious difference between them.
