Nasu mountains

Difficulty 3 Number of Days 2 Tochigi


First announcement for Nasu hike on June 22-23. Nasu mountains are located in Tochigi prefecture.
Hopefully the weather will be cooperative. I had wanted to go in May, but the hut was already fully booked.

The hike is car-based. Rick will come with his car which can accommodate 5 people. So, if more than 5 people want to join, we will need more cars.

Day-1: Touge-no-Chaya car parking (1462m) - Mine-no-Chaya - Mt. Asahi(朝日岳:1896m) – Kumamizone JCT – Sandogoya Hot Spring (stay at Daikokuya)

Day-2: Sandogoya Hot Spring – Numappara JCT – Ushigakubi JCT - Chausu-dake茶臼岳(1915 m) - Touge-no-Chaya car parking

Difficulty 3

Meeting place: Tsukuba Center bus terminal car parking

It will take 2.5 - 3 hours to get to the starting point by car. Since the car parking is limited and quite popular, we will leave Tsukuba early.
