Mount Yari’s sharp peak resonates with its name — which translates to “spear” — and edges at 3,180 meters, making the mountain Japan’s fifth tallest. First climbed by the monk Banryu, who regularly meditated in a cave facing the breathtaking summit, Mount Yari is now one of the nation’s most climbed peaks, attracting big crowds to its summit every summer. But now that summer is long past and hiking season is over, there’s a chance for avid hikers to climb the now human-void mountain from the valleys of Kamikochi, Nagano Prefecture. Although Kamikochi and all facilities within are officially closed for the winter, well-prepared hikers can still access the park from the Nakanoyu bus stop by walking or snowshoeing through the Kama and Kamikochi tunnels. 📸: Oscar Boyd (@oscar.boyd)
