How to get there:

Here is a quick reference and summary of climbs in the summer of 2015.
Route description:
Head up the steps right next to the big sign with information. The trail is wide and set with stones, it crosses a creek (on a small bridge), then arrives at a first (mountain) hut. Next, the trail continues, now more narrow, uphill with dense vegetation on either side, to reach the upper (mountain) hut at location N39.07793, E140.03362, elevation 1540 meter. From here (in June), access a big snow field and walk uphill, then traverse more right to reach the upper part of this area covered with snow. The trail continues uphill at location N39.09175, E140.03987, elevation about 1920 meter.
