Another classic Tohoku stratovolcano descent.

Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Need to Know

Descend the bowl and progress to riders left as you approach the gully and keep out of the ditch. As the ditch gets deeper and larger, keep left and get on top of the ridge on the left side and work your way down.

Description

Spring time will bring plenty of company on this descent but it is too far to bring the Tokyo crowds.

Winter descents are frequently solo even on weekends.
