Thanks to Peter Skov for adding this peak.
In the center of the South Alps, Shiomi stands on its own, separate from the Kita/Aino/Notori chain to the north and the Arakawa/Akaishi/Nijiri chain to the south. It has two peaks, the eastern peak being slightly higher than the western one. Access to Shiomi is via a winding forest road from Oshika Village, and then a four-hour hike to Senjo Pass, and another three hours to the final stretch, which is a steep rugged pile requiring lots of scrambling. From the top you can see across the South Alps, Mt. Fuji, the Central Alps and the North Alps in the far distance.
Thanks to Peter Skov for this description.
