Takamine Yunomaru Loop/(Joshinetsu National Park, Mt. Asama)East Nagano Area

Walk from Takamine Kogen Lamp Inn to Yunomaru Kogen and back
Easy option to walk the gravel road connecting Takamine Kogen and Yunomaru (2 hrs each way)
Difficult option to summit Mt. Mizunoto and return along the gravel road (5 hour loop)
Picnic lunch in Yunomaru Kogen
Onsen at Takamine Kogen Lamp Inn’s famous bath
Beautiful views of Nagano and Gunma prefectures on clear days

This is a great hike with stunning views that is easily accessible from JR Hokuriku Shinkansen Karuizawa or Sakudaira Stations. Because the road goes up to 2,000 meters in Takamine Kogen, most of the climb is finished, although the difficult option still features a summit of Mt Mizunoto. On clear days, you will see Mt. Asama, the Northern Alps and mountains in the Joshinetsu National Park. After having a nice picnic in Yunomaru, return to Takamine Kogen where the view from Takamine Onsen’s outdoor bath is stunning and a great way to end the day.
