Sat/Sun 14,15th Jun: Tanigawadake Ridge Hike & Famous Takaragawa Onsen **.5

Due to cancellations we are back to Tanigawadake, and spring hiking!

No snow on the top but could be on shaded paths in the valley so mini crampons useful unless you are confident. Weather is good so the SCENERY will be **** or  *****. Hike level is only **.5 because we will use the ropeway to the top and hike along flat ridge path for 2 days. Camp or lodge but camp recommended. You really only need sleeping bag as the weather is for clear sky at night Saturday. Carry your own easy to cook food (our stove).

Hiking time is about 6 hours and 8 hours but not more than 1 hour climbing.

Warm clothes as the temperature is 10 degrees C or a bit lower on the top. We will probably stop at the famous mixed bathing onsen of Takaragawa on Sunday and return Tokyo about 9pm.

Meeting Place & Time
Saturday 0710 on platform 16 for the Minakami Limited Express at Ueno station - unreserved non-smoking carriage.
Train leaves at 0720 then we take a bus to Tanigawadake ropeway.

Cost (about)
Train is 4600en, ropeway 1,200en then bus but about 12,000en total or less.
