The popular mountain of Soranuma-dake 空沼岳 (1251m) has a number of picturesque small lakes, or tarns, dotted on its upper slopes, though there is no trail to the one that gives the mountain its name, Soranuma 空沼. The summer trade route up the mountain climbs from the northeast via Bankei-numa 万計沼 tarn and its huts, but once winter arrives it is possible to explore the mountain from other directions on snowshoes. This route climbs up the wild southeast slopes and past the eponymous tarn to reach the summit on a long but satisfying winter day out.
