Hi YH,

Yatsugatake is not just one mountain but an entire range of mountains. Depending on which one you would like to climb, you would have to start your hike from a different trailhead.

Information for climbing Mt. Akadake is listed on our website here. You can see the bus timetable here. Round-trip bus fare is 2,000 yen.

You may also be interested in taking the Kita-Yatsugatake Ropeway up the mountain. You can travel to Mt. Yokodake or Mt. Shimakare from the top of the ropeway. The bus timetable can be seen here. Round-trip bus fare is 2,200 yen.

I hope that helps answer your question!
