Mt. Nagisodake is a part of the Central Alps and Mt. Kisokomagatake, overlooking Mt. Norikura and Mt. Ontake in north and Mt. Ena in the south. Also called Mt. Kinntoki, it was regarded as a place for religious practices in the mountains. With the elevation of 1,677 m, it offers a relatively easy climbing course with variety, ranging from mild to steep hills and those with chain rails. It is a very popular one-day mountain climbing experience destination.
