The trails are open and the longer hikes are possible again. Back in 2014 I hiked up Eboshigadake (2291m・烏帽子岳) in southern Nagano and have wanted to return for a long time.
Eboshidake and Sampukutoge were probably my favourite places to hike to in 2019. I wish I’d known about them earlier
The gateway to this part of the Minami Alps (南アルプス) is high up in Oshika village (大鹿村) in southern Nagano
