Far East 2012 Japanese Ultra Route Maps
© Adam Helman June and September 2012
Ultra prominence route maps are presented in chronological order according to the realized itinerary, beginning with Fuji-san and concluding with Kita-dake. For best viewing re-size maps to "100%" scale if your browser initially displays at a smaller scale.
Maps are saved and printed by right-clicking on each one followed by invoking the "Save As" option. Annotated coordinates for key locations, including trail junctions and summits employ the WGS84 datum.
Both Iwate-san and Rishiri-zan are included even though the latter peak was never visited.
For Yotei-zan the southwest route was taken.
For Iwate-san a southern ascent route was used, not shown on the current map set apart from its convergence with other routes at the crater and summit areas. Details of that ascent (including a GPS track) are available at Rob Woodall's description, and includes a re-routing of the trail for its first 900 horizontal meters.
