The Chubetsu-dake Refuge Hut (忠別岳避難小屋) is a very basic A-frame shelter sitting about 40 minutes walk below (south of) Chubetsu-dake (忠別岳, 1963m) in central Daisetsuzan Range. There's a 15-tent campsite just down from the hut also. The hut is free to stay in, and there's a snow-fed water source at the hut year-round (all water should be boiled or filtered before consuming).
