Mount Karakuni, September 2008
|Elevation||1,700 m (5,600 ft) |
Karakunidake was named as such from two accounts before the Edo period: the first of which referred to the mountain's barren surface, and the second which claimed that climbers can see the distant Korean Peninsula across the sea.
Some maps erroneously spell its name as "唐国岳" (Karakunidake), with the kanji "唐" in place of "韓".
