Nagano PrefectureHonshuLocated in the central part, it is adjacent to the surrounding 8 prefectures, and is a prefecture area that is short in the east and west and long in the north and south, with about 128 kilometers east and west and about 220 kilometers north and south.The southern half of the prefecture is close to the Pacific Ocean side,Minami Shinshu areaMany ofTokyoSouth of the prefecture, the northernmost tip of the prefectureNasushiobara,IwakiIt is almost the same latitude as.The area of ​​Nagano prefecture is 13,562.23square kilometerAnd this isSouth KantoIt is close to the total area of ​​1 metropolitan area and 3 prefectures, and in Japan's prefectures,Hokkaido,Iwate,FukushimaIt has the fourth largest area after.

This prefectureGunma-Saitama-Yamanashi-Shizuoka-Aichi-Gifu-Toyama-NiigataAnd 8 prefectures, and the number of adjacent prefectures is 8, which is the largest among 47 prefectures.[Annotation 1]..However, although it is connected to these prefectures by land, transportation between them is not always easy.For example, the length of the border between Saitama Prefecture and the prefecture is only about 10 kilometers, and Kawakami Village Road No. 192 Azusayama Line[Annotation 2]You can only go back and forth directly.In addition, although it is in contact with Toyama Prefecture by land, the Northern Alps of 3,000 meters class is blocked, it is topographically steep, and it is very deep in the mountains, so it is an air route.Kanden Tunnel Electric BusIt is only possible to come and go by private vehicle, and ordinary people cannot come and go by private vehicle.Another prefectural border where vehicles cannot come and go is the prefectural border between Gunma and Fukushima.Also, due to topographical problems, etc.IidaAnd Shizuoka PrefectureShizuoka City,MatsumotoShimosuwa Town,Otaki VillageOkuwaThere are many cities, towns and villages that are land-based but cannot come and go.

The reason why it is topographically difficult to cross the prefectural border is that Nagano Prefecture is not a mountainous terrain with highlands occupying the central part, but rather the northwestern prefectural border.Hida Mountains, Southeastern prefectural borderAkaishi MountainsHigh altitude, some basins betweenInatani,Matsumoto basin,Saku Basin,Nagano BasinEtc.), which is a region centered on.The mountains near the prefectural border are also called "Japanese roofs," and are lined with high mountains at an altitude of 2,000 to 3,000 meters.However, the central part of Nagano Prefecture is not flat, and it is a steep and complicated terrain with many mountains inside.This is not unrelated to the fact that the vicinity of Nagano Prefecture is close to the plate boundary between the North American Plate and the Eurasian Plate, other than the fact that the Japanese archipelago is a new orogenic belt.In addition, it traverses HonshuItoigawa Shizuoka Structural Line(Itoigawa Line) runs north and south under the prefecture, and the Tertiary layer is distributed on the east side of the Itoigawa Line.Along the Itoigawa lineLake SuwaFromCentral structure lineIs running south.Because of this,Zenkoji earthquakeI have experienced many earthquakes.In addition, there are multiple active volcanoes in Nagano Prefecture.

Natural geographyIn the field of, near Nagano prefectureChubu region OfCentral highlandsClassified as.Although there are some inland prefectures with low rainfall in Honshu, Honshu is sandwiched between the Sea of ​​Japan and the Pacific Ocean, and there is sufficient precipitation to maintain the river in combination with the steep topography of Nagano Prefecture. , There are many water sources in the prefecture.There are many large and small rivers in the prefecture, and there are many terrains where each river has eroded the mountains.Has a basin in Nagano prefectureFirst-class riverAs for the Shinano River system, Tenryu River system, Kiso River system, Hime River system,Yahagi RiverWater systemFuji RiverWater systemSekigawaWater systemTone RiverThere is a water system.There are watersheds in the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of ​​Japan in the prefecture.For exampleTenryu River(Nanshin and Lake Suwa are water sources and pass through Inaya),Kiso River(Chuo Shinkin) goes south and pours into the Pacific Ocean.Also, for exampleChikuma River(Toshin, Kitashin),Saikawa(Nakanobu) merges in Nagano City and moves northward, crossing the prefectural borderShinano RiverChange the name and pour into the Sea of ​​Japan.Himekawa(Chuo Shinkin) is also flowing to the Sea of ​​Japan.

Natural science analysis (volcanic ash analysis, phytosilicate analysis, carbon 14 dating, photoluminescence dating, etc.) of this stone tool inclusion layer was performed and the result was "older than 3 years and newer than 5 years". Until now, it was thought that people began to live in the Japanese archipelago after about 3 years before the late Paleolithic period, but excavations of this site revealed thatMiddle PaleolithicIt was proved that people started living in this prefecture at the end of the period (3 to 5 years ago).[16].

  • Escape from dam declaration
  • Nagano prefecture designation of origin management system(System summary
    See internal link for details
  • Rename concept
    The concept that Tanaka in the governor's era renamed "Nagano Prefecture" to "Shinshu Prefecture". Especially since it is often called "Shinshu" in terms of tourism, it was said to have an effect on the tourism industry. The root of this is that there is still a sense of confrontation between Nagano City and Matsumoto City. Initially it appeared on the newspaper, but it disappears without knowing if there was any actual movement.
  • Yamaguchi Murakoshi merger problem
    oldYamaguchi Village(CurrentGifuNakatsugawaYamaguchi area) was the opposite of the merger of Echi prefecture from the beginning of the merger notification. He continued to disagree with the approval of the merger council and said, "Yamaguchi should remain in Nagano." As a result, the merger was approved and the cross-border merger was realized, but Tanaka himself did not bend his will to the end.
    The conflict with the Yamaguchi-Murakoshi prefectural merger caused a conflict with the Yamaguchi-mura villagers, the village office, the village council, and the prefectural council, which led to the start of the successor governor, Murai Prefectural Government, on the tailwind of the “anti-Tanaka school”.

While there is a view that Tanaka prefectural government is self-righteous and dictatorship, the evils of Nagano prefectural government up to that point (for example, the LDP, which is the majority of prefectural council, ignores the opinions of minority groups and promotes overdevelopment). There is also a tendency to evaluate in that it has defeated, and the pros and cons are divided.

Hitoshi Murai Prefectural Government
  • Declaration of Tanaka prefectural government complete liquidation
    2006 Defeated Tanaka in the governor election (18)Murai HitoshiContinued to criticize Tanaka's political stance as "a dictator" since the election.[Annotation 4], After winningComplete denial and complete liquidation of all Tanaka policiesDeclared to do. What Murai had clearly stated was the abolition of the Governor's Office on the 1st floor of the prefectural office and the cancellation of the declaration of dam removal, which Tanaka moved to the first floor of the prefectural office to "aim for an open prefectural government."
  • Expulsion of "Dam Commissioner"
  • Dissolution of investigation committee suspected of uncertain use of money in the Winter Olympics
    1998 Dissolve the Uncertain Money Research Committee of the Winter Olympics held in (10) on the grounds that it is not constructive to expose the crime of a specific individual or a specific group. The investigative committee plans to investigate the causes of financial deterioration and third-sector railways in the future, which has hindered the discovery of possible administrative cohesion. This is one case that highlights that the prefectural government opened by Tanaka is being closed.
  • linearChuo ShinkansenRoute formulation problem
    While the adoption of "C route" that penetrates the Southern Alps is considered to be influential, "Because it is a large prefecture, it may be two or three (Linear prefecture stations). There must be a station north of route B." It doesn't make sense," he called the argument, "reminiscent of Gada Hikitetsu." After that, in response to growing demand for the realization of the C route in the Iida Shimo Ina region,2010 (22) In May 5, for the first time, a resolution was adopted that did not specify the adoption of route B. This issue was settled on May 2011, 5, when the successor, Governor Abe, announced that it was appropriate to adopt the Southern Alps Route.

Compared to Tanaka prefectural government, Murai prefectural government has been criticized for being “closed prefectural government” and “retrogression of prefectural government,” while at the same time avoiding conflicts with parliament and prefectural officials (most prefectural governors across the country are doing this. There is also a tendency to evaluate (the so-called “all ruling party system”), and the pros and cons are divided like Tanaka prefectural government.

Morio Abe Prefectural Government
  • Shinshu type business sorting

  • Problems associated with the construction of the Linear Chuo Shinkansen
    Of the 795 million cubic meters of residual soil that will be generated due to the construction of the Linear Chuo Shinkansen, the destination of 350 million cubic meters has not been decided as of September 2019, and Governor Abe has been accepting information without setting a deadline. In addition, the temporary storage space until the place of utilization is decided is not sufficient at this moment, and we are accepting candidate sites. We are dealing with noise complaints from heavy machinery during the construction of the Linear Chuo Shinkansen and the construction of the remaining soil storage site.
    Governor Abe is also deeply concerned about the large-scale running water of the Oi River system that occurred in the construction area of ​​Shizuoka Prefecture, and has requested JR Central to conserve water resources.on the other handHeita KawakatsuGovernor of ShizuokaGovernor Abe is in a position to give up on the Governor of Shizuoka, saying, "I am forcing the residents to put up with it.

Nagano Prefecture was formerly known as an “educational prefecture” because it was enthusiastic about education, but the image of Nagano Prefecture as an “educational prefecture” gradually faded as the Japanese education system shifted to deviation-valued education.

2002 (14) Under the Tanaka prefectural government, a class of 30 students in public elementary schools was promoted.2005 (17), a complete 1-person class spanning the 4th grade of elementary school 4st to 30th grade was realized for the first time in Japan at the full cost of the prefecture. In addition, the 5th and 6th grade elementary schools are held jointly with municipalities.

Regarding long-term holidays, some schools also offer "cold holidays" due to the climate of Nagano Prefecture,Winter vacation,Summer VacationDue to short short-term holidays, the number of holidays is smaller than in other prefectures, and the number of school days is increased accordingly.

The official name of the prefectural high school in Nagano Prefecture is “Nagano Prefecture ○○ High School” according to Article 39 of the High School Establishment Ordinance (December 12, 28, Nagano Prefecture Ordinance No. 64), and “Nagano PrefectureStandDo not use “prefectural” names such as “○ Senior High School”. this isHokkaido,MiyagiIs similar to. It is retroactive when the "Prefectural Ordinance No. 1920" was issued in 38 to remove the character "Ritsu" from the name of the old prefectural school.[32], In the case of Nagano prefectureSchool reformAt that time, even union and municipal high schools were not distinguished from prefectural high schools, and there were cases where they called themselves "Nagano Prefecture XX High School", and municipal and union high schools were gradually transferred to prefectural governments. There is a history.

Out of the four-year college students, the rate of going to a university in the prefecture was 1987% in 8.0 (nationwide worst 2)[33] However, since the 1990s, four-year colleges have opened one after another, and in 2013 16.4% (nationwide worst 5)[34] Has improved.

Cable TV

The number of cable TV stations in Nagano prefecture is higher than the average of all prefectures in Japan, and the number of subscribers exceeds half of all households in the prefecture.[38], There are more than 20 stations. It is considered that this has developed because there are many mountains in the prefecture and there are many difficult-to-view areas.

However, in the early days of cable television, the number of stations was small.Therefore, in addition to the purpose of eliminating difficult-to-view areas, each major cable TV station in the prefecture has retransmitted the Nagano prefecture commercial broadcasting station for the purpose of correcting the information gap inside and outside the prefecture.Key station(In some parts of the Shimoina areaResidents' General Administration Bureau) Re-transmission (so-calledRebroadcast outside the area) Was carried out.This out-of-area rebroadcast continued for a long time after the opening of four commercial broadcasters in the prefecture and the correction of the digital divide.2011 OfDigital terrestrial broadcastingDue to the complete transition, basically, except for TV Tokyo, in response to the policy that digital broadcasting will stop re-broadcasting outside the area2014 May 7It was abolished with.

Prefectural character

Shinshu people are generally proud, but at worst they are exclusive and have a lot of bias.In addition, many people are serious, sincere, and original, and are said to like theory.[39].

Introverted and closed-minded and will not show heart, but has a very strong sense of responsibility[39].


It's the most rational in the prefecture, and never stops arguing until it makes sense. There are many hot-blooded people who show emotions and emotions, and they are generally poor at socializing and do not hurt people. Only Shinshu has the temperament of unity[39].

  • Kiso area

Sincere, unsuspecting and will not hurt each other. Patience and well-preserving old traditions[39].


Generally moderate and progressive. There is unevenness in interpersonal feelings, and it is unlikely to show trust feelings once or twice, and easy compromises are not allowed. Also, if you don't fit your heartstrings, you often turn to the other side.[39].

  • Suwa area

It is rational and has a strong scientific and scientific aspect. There is a strong sense of responsibility[40].. Once decided, I dare to go on a steep road[41].

Small-scale fumarolic activity has continued intermittently (1979, 1991) since 2007.[48][49].. As of 2014, it has been designated by the Japan Meteorological Agency as "a volcano that requires enhanced monitoring and observation systems for volcano disaster prevention".[50], For observing volcanic activity around the summitSeismograph, Air vibration meter,Tiltmeter, Volcanic gas detector,GPSObservation device,Surveillance cameraSuch asObservation equipmentIs installed[51][52].. Since 2001Nagoya UniversityThe Graduate School of Environmental Studies is conducting Mitake volcanic disaster observation with a seismograph that observes precursory phenomena of eruptions as a "volcanic eruption warning and evacuation measure project in both Gifu and Nagano prefectures".[53]..

A steam explosion since recorded history that triggered a review of the definition of an active volcano

Before the phreatic eruption in 1979 (Showa 54), Mt. Ontake was recognized as an extinct volcano by many volcanologists and the general public.In fact, the newspaper headline that tells the explosion is also "Extinct volcano explosionWas reported[56]..From this, it was generally recognized that Mt. Ontake was an extinct volcano at this time.However, this only shows that inaccurate recognition was common.For example, literature in the first half of the 19th century records phenomena that actually show evidence of fumarolic activity.[49]..Also, the Japan Meteorological Agency1968 In the "Volcano Observation Guidelines" published (43), Mt. Ontake is listed as "Mt. Mitake" as one of the 63 active volcanoes.1975 It was also included in the 50 active volcanoes of the "Japanese Active Volcano Handbook" published (77).[57].

At the time of 1979, a clear precursor phenomenon was not observed because a regular observation system was not established, and a steam explosion occurred on October 10 of the same year without the activity itself being on a scale where fumaroles could be observed from the foot of the mountain. A fumarole was ejected to a height of about 28 m.[48][58]..The eruption that occurred around 5 o'clock on the same day peaked at 14:XNUMX and then declined.The total amount of ejecta is about XNUMX tons.The volcanic plume flows northeast, Nagano PrefectureKaruizawaAnd Gunma prefectureMaebashiAsh fall was observed up to[9][55][58][59].

This eruption has led to a review of the classification of volcanoes in Japan (definition of extinct volcanoes, dormant volcanoes, and active volcanoes).[9][49]..No terms other than "active volcano" are used today[60].

Volcanic history

The activity history of Mt. Ontake has two active periods, the old period and the new period, with a rest period in between.[61][62]It can be divided into three periods, from the new period to the present.[9]..There is a difference of about 5 years depending on the researcher regarding the age of each beginning and end.The last magma eruption was at Gonoike, which filled Minoike.ScoriaIt is thought to be an eruption, but the date of the eruption is unknown.[63].

Ancient Ontake volcano (from 78 years ago to 39 years ago)

The ancient Ontake volcano was formed by a central volcano with an eruption crater at the same position as it is today, at an altitude of about 3,200-3,400 m.basalt,Andesite,Day sightComposed byCompound volcanogroup[64]..Due to the age and petrological characteristics of the lava layer, the ancient Ontake volcano descended from about 78 years ago to 64 years ago.TephraIs roughly divided into a stage where is predominant and a stage where lava flows from about 64 to 39 years ago are predominant.[65]..The stage where the descent tephra excels is further subdivided into three substages[62]..In addition, four volcanic bodies are estimated from the age and distribution of the lava layer.[66]..Yukawa tephra 5 and Ueurazawa tephra are wide area tephras, respectively.Kazusa GroupInside Shirao Tephra (about 77 years ago[67]) And Kasamori 12 tephra (60-58 years ago)[68][69]..Of these, the Shirao tephraMatsuyama-Brune reversalExists directly underGeomagnetic reversalHelps to determine the age of[67],Chibanian To sayGeological eraContributed greatly to the naming of.

Ontake, and the summits lined up north and south were formed.

Quiet period from about 2 years ago to the present

Before the 2000s, it was thought that the activity that did not erupt magma was the main activity from about 2 years ago, and it was a quiet period, but recent research has shown that four magma eruptions and more than ten steam vapors have occurred in the last 1 years. It is believed that an explosion occurred, and a hillside rift eruption also occurred on the eastern hillside.[74].

In 1868 (the first year of the Meiji era), the 8th station of Kurosawaguchi, "Women's Hall," first started operations as a mountain lodge on Mt. Ontake.[197].. Until the ban on women was lifted in 1872 (Meiji 5), women were prohibited from entering the upper part of the women's hall, which was used by worshipers as an evacuation shed.[197][198]..Modern mountain climbing began with the climbing of foreigners in the early Meiji era[199]. In 1894Walter WestonSince the summit, it has become possible for ordinary climbers to climb.[14]..At the same time as WestonAmerica OfAstronomerPercival LowellClimbed when he visited, and described the situation at that time in "Occult Japan" (Chapter 1 "Mitake").[200].1907 (40th year of Meiji)(I.e.,BasketThere is a photo of a climber on Mt.

Due to the eruption in October 1979, entry was restricted from the summit to the 10th station. In 4, entry restrictions were lifted except near the crater on the summit.[89]..Mountain entry may be restricted by the eruption alert level announced by the Japan Meteorological Agency.[202]..The stepped mountain trail, which was constructed with wooden logs, has been restored and maintained by local volunteers and people involved in the Ontake faith, such as the "Kiso Ontake Service Association".[35][203].. Although it is a high peak over 3,000 m, it may be climbed on a day trip due to the high altitude of the mountain climbing entrance.[204]..School climbing is carried out at Kaida Junior High School, Otaki Junior High School, and elementary schools in Gero City at the foot of the mountain.[205]..At Kurosawaguchi, etc., carry the predecessors of the Ontake class, carry the luggage of believers, and the supplies of the mountain lodge.StrongThere is a person who is responsible for[96][206]..

Due to the eruption in September 2014, the eruption alert level was raised to 9 (mountain entry restrictions), and the area approximately 3 km from the crater was designated as an exclusion zone.[23].. In June 2015, the exclusion zone was reduced to approximately 6km from the crater as the eruption alert level was lowered to 2 (regulation around the crater).[4].. The eruption alert level was lowered to 2017 (note that it is an active volcano) in August 8, but the area approximately 1 km from the crater is still an exclusion zone.On the Kurosawaguchi mountain trail, deregulation of access restrictions only on the mountain trail is relaxed only during the mountain climbing season from July to October.[209]You can go to Kengamine.

Modern mountaineering history


From all directionsTrailHas been opened[6][87][215][216]..Many Kosakaguchi and Hiwataguchi users aim to climb the summit of Hida, Mt. Stepko, or Mt. Marici without climbing to Kengamine.There is a mountain trail on the west ridge that surrounds Ichinoike, which is one of the routes from Kengamine to Ninoike hut.Previously, there was Matsubara Shindo, which climbs the saddle of Kengamine and Mt. Tsugemo via the Murakawa Onsen (which does not exist) along the tributary of Murakawa.1984 The road was abandoned due to the collapse of the Denjo River caused by the Nagano Prefecture Western Earthquake.[87].


The trailhead that can be reached by road is the highest point on Mt. Ontake (Tahara, 2,160 m above sea level), and is the shortest route to Kengamine on the summit.The view along the way is excellent, and you can always see the course from the trailhead to the summit of Otaki from top to bottom.There are evacuation sheds at the 8th and 9th stations between Tahara at the trailhead and the summit of Otaki.Mountain differenceThe opening festival equivalent to is held on July 7st.The road to the rice paddies at the start of the mountain climbing is closed during the snowy season, but there are examples of climbing snowy mountains in early spring using the gondola of the Ontake 1 ski resort. At the 2240st station, there is the Ontake Shrine Satomiya, which enshrines Kuni-no-Tsuneson, Takashi Omi, and Shohiko.[136].. There are Kiyotaki and Shintaki at the 3rd station, and Kiyotaki Fudo Myo is enshrined in Kiyotaki, which is a place for worshipers to go water.[136].. At the 5th station, there is the 6th Gongen, the spirit of giving children, and at the XNUMXth station, there is the god of the eyes, Hakkaisan Okami.[136]..At an altitude of about 2,190 m, there are Tanohara Sanso and Kiso Ontake Natural Recreation Forest Tanohara Natural Park, which can be reached by car during the mountain climbing season.[125].

The oldest mountain trail opened by a wake-up person.ReligionIt is also the mountain trail that is most closely related to.In the summer, "Repentance,Rokune cleanYou can see worshipers in white coats chanting[91][218]..There is a manned mountain hut at each station.Currently near the 7th stationRopewayIimori Station (elevation 2,150 m) was built, and it became possible to climb to almost the same altitude as Tahara at the Otakiguchi mountain climbing entrance, so most climbers began to use the ropeway. , There are still many climbers walking from the 6th station.The opening festival, which is equivalent to the opening of the mountain, is held on July 7, the same as Otakiguchi. At the 1st station, there are Ontake Shrine Wakamiya, which enshrines Takashi Omi, and Satomiya, Ontake Shrine, which enshrines Sukunahikona's name.[100]..Many sacred monuments are lined up in the worship dojo, and at the 4th station, there is the largest sacred monument on Mt. Ontake, and there are many sacred monuments built on a per-company basis.[100]..The route from Matsuo Falls via Yuki Ridge to Hyakuken Falls to the 8th station is called Hyakuken Falls Road.[125]..There is a Hyakuken Falls hut in Hyakuken Falls, which is a place to go.[100].

Perhaps because of the long approach to Kengamine, there are few religious climbers at present, and there are many general climbers.Of this routeMountain differenceEvery yearMay 6Held at Mitake Shrine Hida Kuchiri Shrine[220]..When descending the mountainSpaThe attractive course is that you can enjoy.In addition, there is a course where the trailhead is Kotoshima and joins the road from Nigorigo Onsen under the peep rock evacuation hut, but this course is sometimes called the Kotoshima course in particular.Gonoikegoya on the summit of Hida has a new building expanded in 2010, and the capacity has doubled to 100 people.[221]..In addition, although the mountain trail collapsed due to the heavy rain in June 30, a detour route was established and it became possible to pass from September 6.[222]


One of the courses that does not originate from religious mountain climbing and is a course that climbs toward the summit of Mt.1998 OfCiao Ontake Ski ResortOperates all year round with the development ofGondola lift"Flying Chao" has been used more often, and the number of climbers from the old climbing entrance has decreased.If you use a gondola lift, you can climb to almost the same altitude as Otakiguchi (2,190 m), but the distance from Mt. Stepko to the highest peak, Kengamine, is long.Also, the route is less well maintained than the other courses. As of 2010, Flying Chao operates only during the ski season (early December-early May) and is no longer available for spring-autumn mountaineering.

Mountain hut

Because Mt. Ontake is popular for religious mountaineeringMountain hutThere are many mountain lodges that have an aspect as a religious facility.Gonoikegoya is a modern alpine-style mountain hut[93]..There are many huts and evacuation huts on each worship road and summit[109][223]..On the mountain trailキャンプThere is no designated place, but there is a "Komoshima campsite" at the trailhead of the Komoshima exit.[109]..The hanging scrolls of Mitake Shrine are enshrined in the halls and guest rooms of these mountain lodges.In addition, many huts will be open after July 7st at the opening festival of Otakiguchi and Kurosawaguchi, and although the closing of business varies depending on the hut, it is often from the end of August to the end of September.Mitake Shrine, Mitakekyo, and Kiso Mitake Honkyo open the mountain from July 1th to September 8th, so during that time, religious climbers in white costumes often stay and stop by.The Gonoikegoya is exceptionally open from June 9st to October 7th, and is open for a long time. The 10th and 9th mountain lodges are also open during the autumn leaves season.

There are many manned mountain lodges in the mountaintop area, but at Kurosawaguchi, manned mountain lodges are open at each station along the way. Before the 2014 eruption, there were many mountain lodges that used the water of Ninoike as a water source for drinking water, and mountain lodges other than the "Gonoikegoya" far from Ninoike and the mountain lodges below the 7th station were called "Ninoike Water Association". It was established and jointly installed, maintained, and removed water supply facilities.In addition, the staff of "Ninoike Main Building (currently Ninoike Sanso)" operates the water source pump facility on a daily basis, and "Ninoike Main Building (currently Ninoike Sanso)" and "Ninoike New Building (currently Ninoike Sanso)" use abundant lake water. Currently: Ninoike Hutte), Ishimuro Sanso, and Kakumei-do (currently unmanned), in addition to preparing baths for guests every day, a mountain lodge that provides guests with baths for staff only when there are few guests. However, due to the acidification of the lake water, which is thought to be due to the ash fall of the 2014 eruption, water intake from the lake water is not currently being used.

In the past, the toilets in the mountain lodge were almost completely drained, but with the growing interest in environmental issues, the manned mountain lodge is being renovated to a pit latrine.The collected human waste is transported to the foot of the mountain by a helicopter and handed over to a processor.Since the maintenance cost is high, we ask the toilet users to pay a cooperation fee of XNUMX yen per use.

In many manned mountain lodges and mountaintop shrine offices, Kongo-zue used for religious mountaineeringBrandingThere is a charge for the service of stamping. In 1891 (Meiji 24), a signboard "I will stamp a commemorative mark on a mountain trail" was installed at a shrine on a mountain trail, and this branding was done.[225].Mount FujiAlthough it is a particularly popular service, it is still a valuable existence, although the number of mountain lodges to be implemented on Mt. Ontake has been reduced a little.However, there are not as many people who want to brand as Mt. Fuji, and there are many places where the brand is heated after the applicant appears, so it often takes time to brand.In addition, the stamping fee is also higher than that of Mt. Fuji.

Estimating the number of climbers

The number of climbers on Mt. Ontake from the Kiso side until the middle of the Showa period is estimated as shown in the table below.[226].. The number of people entering the mountain from Kurosawaguchi around 2010 was about 3 a year.[227].
