Mt. Hakusan Hike

Along with Mt. Fuji and Mt. Tateyama, Mt. Hakusan is regarded as one of Japan's three sacred mountains. There are three peaks along the ridge: Gozenga-mine (2,702m), Ohnanji-mine (2,684m), and Kenga-mine (2,677m). It is said that people began to worship Mt. Hakusan in 717 when, for the first time, a monk from Echizen named Taicho climbed Mt. Hakusan and carried out ascetic practices. Hakusan Okumiya (literally "shrine at the back") is located on Gozenga-mine peak. The ridge and the surrounding area are covered with alpine plants, and the mountainsides are entirely covered by virgin forests of Japanese beech and other trees. Hike up Mt. Hakusan to fully enjoy its wonderful nature.
