Mount Yari in the Northern Alps, the fifth highest peak in Japan at 3,180 meters above sea level, is characterized by its sharp appearance like the tip of a spear, as its name suggests. Standing at the tip of the spear, you can enjoy an unobstructed 360-degree panoramic view of the entire Northern Alps and even as far away as Mt. Fuji in the distance. This symbol of the Northern Alps, with its distinctive presence, has become a target of admiration for many climbers, from beginners to experts.
