Komayumidake locates in Aoki village in Nagano Japan. This village used to be an important barrier station between Ueda and Matsumoto. In the war era, there were many mountain castles. Komayumidake castle was one of the most important mountain castles and belonged to Sanada clan. Now let’s try Komayumidake mountain and see how impregnable it was.
The Closest Bus Stop Togo is Far from the Trekking Route
The bus runs from the Ueda station to Aoki village every one hour. Take “Aoki-sen” bus and get off at “Togo” bus stop. There are Japanese traditional houses, and you can see beautiful farm view. About 45 minutes walk you will see a resting house for mountain climbers.（Chikuma Bus Aoki-sen Time Table only Japanese）
