Hello! This is nishikawa in charge of san-El PR!

In this article, I would like to introduce Tsujihashi, the president of Sunel who was born and raised in Matsusaka City and loves his hometown!

In fact, he has a very delicate and playful personality, but there are rumors that some people misunderstand him because he looks frightening (accepted by himself)...

As public relations, I thought it was a serious situation, but I got information that Tsujihashi had found a new hobby.

west side of a river
I have to make an article about this so that people will know more about Tsujihashi!

What hobby did Tsujihashi discover? . .

that isSolo mountaineering!

After confirming with Tsujihashi, the destination I chose for my first solo climb was 757m above sea level in Matsuzaka city.Mount Horisaka(Hossakasan, Hossakayama)! It also turned out that

Horisakayama (Mt. Horisaka)

  • One of the three mountains of Ise, also known as "Ise Fuji
  • Because of its easy access from Matsusaka City and its surroundings, this popular mountain attracts climbers not only from within the prefecture, but also from the Tokai and Kansai regions.

Quickly,Interview with Tsujihashi, who was fascinated by solo mountaineering through climbing Mt.HorisakaI tried to do so!

I want a hobby!

Tsujihashi spends his days hard, such as work and dinner.

While being chased by busy days, the person himself was thinking about this.

"Everyone has a hobby even though they are busy... I want a hobby too!"

scuba diving! ?
This was also a very hard field to attack, wasn't it?

That's right! !
There was a time when I went to the gym's pool because I thought, "Let's start with small things first!" in order to scuba dive.

Where did that hobby go?

There are many steps to prepare before starting scuba
I understand. Equipment preparation and arrangements, and many other things. So, as a result, I haven't been able to go to the pool for many years...

I see... So, you found a new one: mountain climbing?
What made you decide to climb mountains?

When I was young, I loved traveling and going around the world and places I didn't know. I still want to go on various trips. However, I couldn't go there, so I watched YouTube about traveling, camping, and mountaineering.

Traveling to unexplored regions such as overseas, completely different life in unknown areas, extreme mountain climbing,
In addition, watching videos of a world that is far from your daily life, such as a mountain accident
I've been fascinated by it.

Above all, even in dangerous eyes and hard eyesWhat is the charm of mountain climbing?
I was very worried, and when I noticed, I was ready.

Of course, you need to prepare well in advance because you don't have any knowledge about mountain climbing in the neighborhood.

First of all, in order to prepare the equipment for mountain climbing, go to a nearby sporting goods store!

What kind of things did you buy for this mountaineering trip?
street bridge
The store clerk is very kind. First of all, what kind of clothes should I wear? ?
I politely answered even a really beginner question.

As I asked various questions, I got more and more excited, saying, "Coffee at the top of the mountain!" . .

(see image below)Backpacks, tables, stoves, kettles, and other mountaineering goods, as well as sweat-absorbing and quick-drying innerwear, shorts, tights, and other mountaineering wearI bought all of them.

Preparation for solo ascent of Mt. Horisaka

Very satisfying shopping Finally, to the clerk"Speaking of which, which mountain are you climbing?"Tsujihashi asked.


I don't think you need to buy all this gear to climb that mountain."

street bridge
I'm a timid type, so I like to carefully research and prepare. But there were so many things I didn't understand, so I asked the store clerk over and over again!
street bridge
Thank you very much to the store clerk who was very kind to me for a long time! !

Horisaka Mountain Hiking Course: The actual route where Tsujihashi was climbed

Horisakayama Course Introduction

Horisaka is a famous mountain that has been worshipped since ancient times, so there is a torii gate at the entrance and lanterns and stone monuments along the way, creating a serene and mysterious space.

The course that Tsujibashi tried this time was,A 3.1 km round trip course from Horisaka Pass to Mt.

mountain trail

The climbing course is short and recommended for beginners, but for those not accustomed to mountaineering, the incline may seem steep.

street bridge
To make it easier for climbers to walk, the roots of the trees have been cut down and steps have been set up... but it's tougher than I imagined!
street bridge
I can't believe my physical strength is not so high! If I hadn't told everyone in the company about going to Mt.Horisaka, I would have turned back halfway through...

Because of the ease of climbingAs it is a popular mountain, bamboo canes are placed at the entrance.Please be assured that we will be able to provide you with the best service.

However, do not forget to return the cane when you are finished using it!

Climbing course 2

There have been reports of bear sightings, so be sure to fill out the mountain trail record book at the entrance to the trail!

The road to the summit seems endless, but it is important, of course, to take a break!

Therefore,Introducing a little bit of the original resting point that Tsujihashi found along the wayI will do so.

The stone has a serene appearance that makes you want to sit down and compose a poem.

From the point of view of preventing fallen trees, the trees that look like they have been felled are also perfect resting points.

When I reach this point, I think, "I'm only halfway up the mountain!"Seriously! Is this half? ? Shall we go home here?"I thought about it quite seriously.

Is the path to the summit steep?
street bridge
Yes, it was really steep and difficult. More than 6 times, I seriously thought I was going to turn back.

When I arrived at the summit, I sank into the ground for a while before I was impressed and could not move at all.

And finally, we arrived at the summit!

The exhilaration of reaching the summit is unimaginable!
I am the one who climbed up well!

But the next moment, a shocking sight met my eyes.

Near the top of the mountain, you can see elderly people with pets, mothers with babies on their backs, and families with children enjoying themselves.

street bridge
Honestly, I thought...

triangulation point

Speaking of things you can only see at the top of the mountain,triangulation pointThe following is a list of the most common problems with the

Even though I was shocked by the shocking and surprising sight, I snapped a photo to commemorate the summit.

triangulation point

A point that serves as a reference point for surveying such as diagrams, and is often found on mountain tops.
Most are made of granite, 15 to 18 cm square, and the reason for the name "triangular point" despite its square shape comes from the standard of the surveying method known as triangulation.

After climbing to the top of the mountain and enjoying it to the fullest, it was time to descend!

But it can happen to anyone that you lose track for a moment of where you came up from in the first place.

Tsujihashi is one of them.

Rope to prevent getting lost

young (animal)The rope is to prevent you from getting lost.The product is strung on a

In fact, when Tsujihashi also tried to descend from the summit, he was at a loss for a moment as to which route he had climbed from and where to get off.

However, they found this rope to be a landmark and were able to descend the mountain calmly.

Climbing information sites, etc., introduce how to respond to increase the probability of being rescued in the event of an accident.

There are three main ways to respond in case of distressIt is likely to be

3 points to consider when in distress

  1. If you get lost in the mountains, don't rush down the mountain!
    Aiming for the summit may lead to a ridge with a good view and the possibility of finding a trail, allowing for a safe descent from the trail.
  2. When you get lost, don't go down into the stream!
    Maps often do not depict waterfalls and streams, making it difficult to find a waymark. The paths are also difficult for people to follow, and without ropes it is difficult to walk on them, which can lead to injury.
  3. If you get lost, go back!
    If you walk around in the mountains in the dark without knowing your direction, etc., you are more likely to get lost. If you lose your way, turn back the way you came.

New discoveries in mountaineering: What is the real thrill of mountaineering, as told by Tsujihashi?

What is the best part of mountaineering that you have learned through this climb?

I don't know if I can call it the real pleasure,Besides being fun, you can go to Mt. Horisaka as soon as you feel like it.I thought.

In addition, it was a big discovery that led to a grasp of the current state of my physical strength. When I actually climbed the mountain, I realized that my physical strength was declining.

I see, so you had such a realization about yourself.

Now I have started walking 7 km on nice days to prepare for my revenge on Mount Horisaka. It's fun to see the daily changes even in nearby spots. For example,LocalSuzunomori ParkThe fountain has been restored and the fountain in theMatsusaka ParkDiscovering the charms of the city, etc., that only walking can provide.I am happy to have found the
Suzunomori Parkis a park created in collaboration between citizen groups and the government on the site of the former Kanebo cotton yarn factory. There is a large zelkova in the middle of the grassy area that catches the eye. The attached fountain has three patterns of water spray and is very popular with children.

Matsusaka Parkis the site of Matsuzaka Castle, which was built by Ujisato Gamo, a military commander of the Sengoku period. Today, only the stone walls remain and it is loved by the citizens as a castle ruins park.

Opinions seem to be divided among mountaineers, but there are two types of poles used to reduce the load on the way up and down the mountain, called poles, and then there are poles that are used to reduce the load on the way up and down the mountain, called stocks.I wanted to eat freshly made hot sandwiches with delicious coffee at the summit, so I used a hot sandwich cooker.after the climbing challenge.
