Founded over 140 years ago, this is one of the oldest mountain huts in the Northern Alps. The specialty here is the salted char fish, which are carefully grilled by an open fire in a traditional sunken hearth. The whole fish can be eaten, even the bones—and they are absolutely delicious.
This mountain hut stands right below the peak of Mt. Chogatake, which rises 2,677 meters above sea level. The view from here is spectacular.
To Mount Jonendake
The ridge line that runs from Mt. Chogatake to Mt. Jonendake is one of the most popular traversing courses in Japan. To the west, hikers can enjoy the view of the Yari-Hotaka Mountain Range, which includes eight peaks of over 3,000 meters.
