Trip Info

The Kuromidake Tour is suitable for beginners or those with little hiking experience. However, you should be in good health as it is an 8 hour walk and there is a little bit of rope climbing near the top of Kuromidake.

The Kuromidake Tour commences in the higher region of the temperate zone with conifer trees and evergreen species, but at around 1600 meters the conifers become stunted and make way for the Yakushima rhododendrons and junipers. In June, the hike in the highland can be spectacular as the rhododendron are in bloom and late summer is also a good time to visit this area as some of the delicate alpine plants make an appearance.

Your adventure awaits!
