Jiigatake is a mountain at an altitude of 2,670m in the southern part of the Ushirotateyama mountain range in the Hida Mountains (Northern Alps), which straddles Omachi City in Nagano Prefecture and Tateyama Town in Nakaniikawa District, Toyama Prefecture. It was named after the snow shape of an old man sowing seeds between the southern peak and the central peak that appears during the snowy season and has been used as a guide for farming.
The mountain consists of three peaks, the north peak, the main peak (central peak), and the south peak, and it curves greatly to the west, creating a magnificent large slope.
The mountain body is composed of welded tuff that erupted about 1.6 million years ago, and there is a pond called "Taneike" around it, where black salamanders and hawkers live.
