Trekking to Mt. Oyama from Murododaira, Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route in Toyama
Murododaira Station is located at the height of 2,450 m. The Murododaira Station is the key station to climb Tateyama mountain range and to visit Kurobe Dam.
The Tateyama mountain range consists of Mt. Oyama (3,003 m), Mt. Oonanji (3,015 m) and Mt. Fujino Oritate (2,999 m).
We saw many local elementary school students climbing Mt. Oyama with their teachers. It’s a 4-hour round trip to the top of Mt. Oyama.
We went to Ichinokoshi Hut (2,700 m). We wanted to go to the top of Mt. Oyama, but we were just wearing casual summer clothes and running shoes, so we gave up to climb this time, but hope to visit Tateyama again.
After climbing to Ichinokoshi Hut, we went to the Murodoyama observation deck.
The time it takes to walk around Murododaira is about 3-4 hours. There are not much slopes in Murododaira, so you can really enjoy one of the highest peaks in Japan.
