Mountain climbing

There are nine mountain trails to be able to enjoy depending on experience from a mountain climbing guide person to an expert in Mount Kurikoma.
I can overlook Tsukiyama, Mount Chokai, Mount Zao, Mt. Komagatake, Mount Hayachine and the distance Pacific from the mountaintop of the day when it was fine.
There is much snow in the mountain trail, and opening of the mountaineering season often remains just after that, and, as for the slight mountain climbing experience including a beginner and the beginner, the center, east Kurikoma, Sugawa mountain trail are recommended. These three mountain trails can climb a mountain for a general mountaineer relatively safely for the longest period.
I introduce the summary of each course here.

In six mountain climbing courses of Mount Kurikoma (Kurihara-shi side), you came to be able to see a central course in Google street view.
The Google street view is one of the functions of the Google map which Google provides.
As I have you search it with "Mount Kurikoma" and shade it with a peg man of the lower right (yellow doll) on Google map, and a blue line is displayed, it is service to be able to have if look at scenery in a 360-degree panorama photograph when I have the top drop it.
As it is center course photographed in the season of autumn colored leaves, I can taste the feeling that I took a walk through with a feeling walking in colored leaves.
