I’ve finally gotten around to updating the Kansai 100 tally to reflect all 100 mountains. It was nearly impossible to determine the exact dates for the first 30 mountains or so, since I did not have a digital camera and was relying solely on memory and subtle clues in the printed film photos. It wasn’t until the beginning of 2011 that I started attempting the Kansai Hyakumeizan in earnest, and many of the pre-2011 mountains I have climbed multiple times.
The Kansai Hyakumeizan aren’t too hard to finish if you have a car. If not, then prepare yourself for some pretty long approaches and several multi-day traverses, as well as some careful planning with JR’s fickle train schedules.
