YesAsia Editorial Description

Mountaineering during the Meiji era might not sound like blockbuster material, but Mt. Tsurugidake racked up over two billion yen at the Japanese box office with good old-fashioned adventure, stirring drama, spectacular imagery, and a load of A-list stars. Based on a Nitta Jiro novel about actual early 20th century events, Mt. Tsurugidake recruits the all-star cast of Asano Tadanobu, Kagawa Teruyuki, Matsuda Ryuhei, Miyazaki Aoi, Nakamura Toru, and Yakusho Koji for the inspiring quest to reach the unexplored peak of Mt. Tsurugidake, the last unmapped spot on Japan's maps. Also known as The Summit: A Chronicle of Stones to Serenity, Mt. Tsurugidake marks the directorial debut of Kimura Daisaku, the veteran cinematographer of films like Nihon Chinbotus, The Bast Shall Die, and Sugata Sanshiro.

Renowned land surveyor Shibazaki Yoshitaro (Asano Tadanobu) has been commissioned by the government to map Mt.Tsurugidake and its surrounding terrains. Forming a small team that includes willful assistant surveyor Shin (Matsuda Ryuhei) and hardy woodsman Chojiro (Kagawa Teruyuki), they bravely set out into the great unknown, but the hike is tough and unforgiving as blizzards, avalanches, and other dangerous obstacles threaten to put an end to their dreams. Will Shibazaki and his team see the top of Tsurugidake?

陸軍陸地測量部の柴崎芳太郎(浅野忠信)は、日本地図最後の空白地点を埋めるため、「陸軍の威信にかけて、劔岳の初登頂と測量を果たせ」という厳命を受ける。妻・葉津よ(宮崎あおい)の励ましを受け、柴崎は前任の測量手・古田盛作(役所広司)から紹介された案内人の宇治長次郎(香川照之)と劔岳の調査のため山に入ったが、登頂への手掛かりすら掴めずに下山する。翌明治40年(1907年)、測夫・生田 信(松田龍平)らを加えた測量隊総勢7人で雄山、奥大日岳、別山など劔岳周辺の山々に三角点を設置。ついに劔岳に挑むが絶壁、雪崩、暴風、雨、困難に次ぐ困難が、測量隊の行く手を阻む。一方、創立間もない日本山岳会の小島烏水(仲村トオル)らも最新の登山道具を揃え、劔岳山頂を目指していた。果たして、柴崎たちは、無事劔岳に登頂し、地図作りの任務を遂行することができるのか。
