The summit is 1.7km from the chair lift, climbing up 400metres, will take maximum 75minutes and can be done in less than 60 for the Super fitter ones. 30 to 45mins to come back down. Bring some food & drinks and squeeze everything out in...More

The chairlift is very restful on a good weather day. Particularly if you've had to fight your way past the hordes of bus tours you've been jammed into the cable car with. There's a nice not too taxing walk at the top to a proper...More

A gorgeous hike with easy access and well-cared for trail. Once you summit Kurodake, make sure to spend a few more hours summiting other peaks and exploring the area. We spent maybe 8 hours total in the park. The hut made for a nice place...More
