Now several years after the eruption, is Mt. Ontake open for hiking?

Hi there,

Hiking season usually begins in June when snow has melted from the mountain tops. Unless you have winter climbing experience, I do not recommend attempting to hike Mt. Ontake before June. The trails to the mountaintop will also remain closed until the huts near the peak open for the summer season.

I hope that answers your question.
