Be careful of the junction with the Subashiri Trail!

About 1000 people go down the Subashiri Trail by mistake every season. If you go down the Subashiri Trail by mistake, you cannot get back onto the Yoshida Trail. Also please note that there is no direct bus from the Subashiri Trail 5th Station to the Fuji-Subaru Line 5th Station. If you go down to the Subashiri Trail 5th Station by mistake, you will have to take a bus or a taxi to get back to the Yoshida Trail. The ascending Trail and descending Trail are separated.

Turn left at the " Shita-edoya" mountain hut. Take the narrow path in front of the hut.
