Amazing Autumn in Nozawa
We were blessed with a period of fine weather over the last few days, so were able to make a hike to the summit to witness a spectacular sunset/sunrise. The foliage slowly turning to autumn colors made for a beautiful backdrop, you may be able to recognize one of your favorite runs Yamabiko A course!
There are plenty of hiking courses on the mountain ranging from small strolls in the forest to full day or overnight treks. Across from us is the famous Shinetsu trail which runs along the border of Niigata and Nagano prefectures, and takes approximately 5 days to finish at a leisurely pace with food and rest houses along the way.
