For the past 2 decades, I've been chipping away at this list of the highest mountains in Japan, albeit at a snail's pace. :-) And on Aug. 12, 2011, I finally reached my goal.

Truth is, it's been my good fortune thru the years to climb all of Japan's 29 highest peaks, and 38 of the tallest 50.

Japan's highest 21 peaks that are taller than 3000 m are known as "Three-thousanders."

Here's the list:

Rank Name Elev. (m)

1 Mt. Fuji (Fuji-san) (富士山) 3776
2 Kita-dake (北岳) 3193
3 Oku-hotaka-dake (奥穂高岳) 3190
4 Ai-no-dake (間ノ岳) 3189
5 Yari-ga-take (槍ヶ岳) 3180
6 Warusawa-dake (悪沢岳) 3141
7 Akaishi-dake (赤石岳) 3120
8 Karasawa-dake (涸沢岳) 3110
9 Kita-hotaka-dake (北穂高岳) 3106
10 Obami-dake (大喰岳) 3101
11 Mae-hotaka-dake (前穂高岳) 3090
12 Naka-dake (中岳) 3084
13 Arakawa-naka-dake (荒川中岳) 3083
14 Ontake-san (御嶽山) 3067
15 Nishi-notori-dake (西農鳥岳) 3051
16 Shiomi-dake (塩見岳) 3047
17 Minami-dake (南岳) 3032.7
18 Senjo-ga-take (仙丈ヶ岳) 3032.6
19 Norikura-dake (乗鞍岳) 3026
20 Tateyama (立山) 3015
21 Hijiri-dake (聖岳) 3013
22 Tsurugi-dake (剱岳) 2999
23 Suisho-dake (水晶岳) 2986
24 Kai-koma-ga-dake (甲斐駒ヶ岳) 2967
25 Kiso-koma-ga-dake (木曽駒ヶ岳) 2956

If you ever have a chance to climb any of these peaks, I hope you find the info, including pics, maps, & trail descriptions, on my website useful.

Cheers,
Gary
