The Hisagonuma Refuge Hut (ヒサゴ沼避難小屋) is a small, basic two-story wooden hut with a camping area, located next to the Hisagonuma lake (ヒサゴ沼) to the east of the main ridge of Kaun-dake (化雲岳), in the central Daisetsuzan Range. The campground can be boggy. Officially, the hut is strictly for emergency overnight stays only (as per the official webpage). Therefore, if choosing to stay next to the lake, ideally you'll have a tent, and stay at the campsite nearby.
