Mount Chokai

Is there a mountain that can come close to the beauty of Mount Fuji? Mount Chokai, which lies across Akita and Yamagata prefectures, is called Akita Fuji or Dewa Fuji, meaning as beautiful as Mount Fuji. It has been chosen as one of the top 100 mountains and sceneries in Japan.

Mount Chokai has an altitude of 2,236 meters and is the second highest mountain in Northeastern Tohoku. If you’re a climbing novice, you’ve got nothing to worry about as long as you come fully equipped. A leisurely hike will take you 10 hours or eight if you are fast. A day trip is all you need to complete this hike!

Once you reach the top, you’ll be rewarded by spectacular views. So if you are looking for a way to recharge or simply to get away from the bustle of the city, I highly recommend planning a hike up Mount Chokai. Your body and mind will thank you.

秋田県と山形県にまたがる鳥海山。
秋田富士・出羽富士とも言われ、富士山のように美しい姿を持つ、標高2236メートル、東北第2の標高を誇る山です。

その美しさから、日本百名山、日本百景に選ばれています。
夏でも雪が残るところがありますが、しっかりとした装備で登山をすれば、初心者でも日帰りで十分に登ることができる山です。

ゆっくり登って下山するまで10時間、体力に自身がある人ならなら8時間程度で行けます。
湿度の高い真夏の秋田でも、ここはさすがに標高が高いので湿度が低く、爽やかな汗をかくことができます。
ところどころに咲いている、高山植物も美しく、大自然からパワーをいただいているようで、身も心も浄化されます。

行きかう登山客の人たちと気持ちよくあいさつを交わし、晴れた日に山頂から絶景を見渡せば、
忙しい日常から解放されることでしょう。リフレッシュをするのに最適なスポットです。
