I visited the Happo pond in the summer. First taking the gondolas, then two lifts to the height of 1,800 meters then trekking to the pond. It took about 90-120 minutes. Good exercise for any ages. There are few good coffee shops and restaurants at...More

One hour hike up Mount Hakone-sanzen from ski lifts. Spectacular views. Amazing when one climbs above the clouds. Spectacular view of the reflections from the pond of the mountain peaks.

This pond sits atop of Mt. Happo. It can be accessed from a set of lifts and a two-hour walk. Preparing your own hiking poles is recommended. The weather can change rapidly, so bring a raincoat. In mid-June, some snow can still be seen, and...More

If your in good shape and are willing to break a sweat I would highly recommend the hiking trail up to Mt. Karamatsu-Dake summit. The hike up there would take you about two and a half hours walking at a fairly high pace but when...More

After the gondola and lifts of Happo-one, you have to walk to the lake for 1.5 hours one way. The beginning of the trekking trail is easy, but the second half is a long way of rocky, steep track. Remember to prepare your trekking poles...More

Drove to the top chairlift, it would have been an expensive excursion to get the chairlift all the way and while the hike was enjoyable for a non-hiker, the pond is a big disappointment. It is a hole in the ground! You think, "this can`t...More

Are you talking about a trip from Thailand to Japan? Or just a trip up the lifts? The lifts were about 1,800 yen round trip I think, Maybe a little bit cheaper or more expensive depending on money rates. To get to that... More

残雪状態によりますが、黒菱平のPまで車で行き、そこから歩いて行けるみたいですね。 ”黒菱平 リフト使わず” でグーグル検索しました。 URL貼れないので…ご参考になれば。 「~山歩き~ 秋に登る八方池から唐松岳」 9月下旬のブログみたいです。
