Teshiodake Emergency Hut
Last updated Feb 25, 2020
This hut is about as basic as it gets. As a well-built a-frame, it does the job of keeping the elements out, but that’s about it. The hut is open year round, but winter access may involve digging to access the lower door.
There is no booking for this hut.
Heating: No heating.
Water: Water can be obtained from snow melt around the hut till around the end of June. Treat or filter before consuming. Beyond June until around the end of November, it is best to assume no water at the hut.
Kitchen/cooking: No cooking facilities or utensils.
Bedding: No bedding.
Toilets: There are toilets nearby in a separate building.
Cell reception: Patchy, but yes (docomo/Au).
No hutkeeper present.
NOTE: For number references to official printed topographical maps, check the main route report ( coming soon ).
The vast majority of huts in Hokkaido are 100% maintained through passionate volunteer time and effort. Even though this hut is funded by Shibetsu City, the day to day maintenance is done largely by volunteers. If you make a visit, please give the place a clean, and make sure to sign the guest book. Always leave a hut cleaner than you found it.
