On-take, or correctly Ontake-san, is a massive stratovolcano and the second highest in Japan, standing 3,067 m tall. It is located at the southern end of the Northern Japan Alps. On-take volcano is one of the holy mountains of Japan and the destination for religious pilgrimage since 1792. Even now, disciples wearing white clothing (kimono for ascetic training) come and go there. There are various climbing routes, so you can choose a route depending on your schedule and physical strength. Examples include the Kaida-guchi route for peaceful tramping, the Kurosawa-guchi route, with a ropeway up to near the seventh station, the Otaki-guchi route, which you can drive on up to the sixth station, and the Nigorigo-guchi route, which a few climbers use.
