#7 of 15 in Nature in Nakaniikawa-gun
Mountain · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Mount Tsurugi (剱岳, Tsurugi-dake) is located in the eastern area of Toyama Prefecture, Japan. It is one of the tallest peaks in the Hida Mountains at 2,999 m (9,839 ft). It is one of the 100 Famous Japanese Mountains, and is called "the most dangerous mountain" climbable.
Tsurugi has a number of routes which approach world class long routes. It is recognised in Japan as "the" premiere mountaineering peak in winter. Although dangerous, its death toll is a small fraction of those who have died on Japan's much smaller, but more lethal Tanigawa-dake.

  • Great hike
  • GWの源治郎尾根からの登頂はとても綺麗で最高です。秋は八ッ峰縦走、北方稜線とアルパインが堪能できる最高の山です。 また、アルパインクライミングとして、八ッ峰やチンネ左稜線はクライマーなら一度は訪れたいルートでもあります。
