Yariga-take Sanso and Hotaka-dake
This photo illustrates most of the ridge line between Yariga-take (3,180m) and Hotaka-dake (3,190m). In the right corner is Yariga-take Sanso which can accommodate more than 350+ people (if they are stacked like sardines, I might say). We spent a cold but manageable night at the hut after eating yummy dinner, breakfast and even getting a lunch bento box for our climb next day. This photo is taken from near the summit of Yariga-take. We came down and continued on the ridge until Hotaka-dake Sanso, some 8km away.
