We started in Takasaki at 10:00 am and took the highway, then R142 and reached Kurumayamakogen-ski-area (車山高原スキー場) about 12.00 pm. The weather was fine.
Of cause the two chairlifts have been big fun for the children. On the mountain top a cold wind was blowing. We walked around the top for about 40 minutes from where we had a good view on Yazugatake-mountain range, Fujisan, Minami-alps (esp. Kitadake, Ainodake, Houousan), Kitaalps (Takeyama), Asamayama and others.
We walked down in the snow until the middle station. For the children it was a bit tough, they sank into the snow, but at the end it was fun and they did well. At 3:00 pm we took the chairlift downwards. In the evening it became cloudy. We returned to Takasaki about 6:00 pm.
This mountain was the easiest of the 100 Meisan. No climbing is necessary.

2013, July 14th I hiked here again. This time started at the parking area at 13:00, walked up to 車山 Kurumayama. From there to the west and took a long walk around the highlands, in total 4 and a half hours. The way is easy to find and walk, lots of flowers to see and offers beautiful views on the surrounding mountains.
