Great base for Mount Mizugaki/ Mount Kimpu Oct 15, 2012
This place is located perfectly for the hikers who are climbing Mt. Mizugaki and Mt. Kimpu, which are listed "100 best trails in Japan".

The hut is operated by a nice old couple who has lots of knowledge about mountains.

Long time ago, there occured a nightmare (a solo female hiker was raped and killed by a previous hut master) and this hut had been abondoned since then for ages, but current master made a lot of effort to have this hut "reborn" a few years ago.

The campground was big enough and about 50 tents could be pitched there. No reservation was needed at all.

The fee was 1000yen/tent including the use of toilet and natural water was supplied for free close to the hut.

It was quite nice but toilet was very very stinky regardless of the masters effort... It's not a bio-toilet. (Japanese government cut the budget for making eco-friendly toilet on the trails...damn them.)

The hut sells beer/wine/coffee/tea, and it would be nice to take seated in the candle light with likeminded hikers and the owners. I would highly recommend you to visit there if you're climbing Mt. Kimpu or Mt. Mizugaki.

Forgot to add; if you don't need to have meals at their place, accommodation doesn't require booking. It's 4500yen.

Yes they have dorms as well. You need to book in advance and price is 8500yen inclusive of 2 meals.
In December they're open only for weekends. You could get in touch with them through their facebook account as there is a staff from UK or US (I am not quite sure which country she is from).

The trail is not quite long if you're just hitting the summit of Mt. Mizugaki (2230m). It's about 5hrs for the entire hike. If you stay at guesthouse near Nirasaki, it wouldn't be necessary to stay here. If you also want to visit Mt. Kinpu (2595m) combined with Mizugaki, you definitely need to sleep at this place. It would take about 7-8hrs for the summit of Kinpu.

Weather in Kinpu will be severe in December so you will need to bring full winter hike equipment. Mizugaki could be easier.

Thank Lotus. Is it only for tents, or do they have a dorm? I'm try to avoid traveling with my tent and sleeping bag on an upcoming trip. How long is the trail?
Thanks
