About climbing the Daisetsuzan mountain range
While now it is the popular season to enjoy hiking in the Daisetsuzan Range,visitors are reminded to double check the mountain conditions before you leave to prevent accidents. It should be noted that the weather is unsteady and can change rapidly.Even if it is sunny when you start to climb the mountain, it is not unusual that the weather will suddenly change and the vision can become blurry. During hiking or climbing, if you think that "I do not know the route" or "I got lost" please call the police for help immediately as it is the sign of mountain distress. Please call 110 to report an accident to the police call center for rescue. Careful planning and adequate equipment for winter mountain climbing is required in order to prevent accidents. Always check the local weather and avalanche forecasts before you climb.
