Four climbers who were reported missing this week on snowy Mount Asahidake, the highest peak in Hokkaido, were taken to a hospital Thursday without any life-threatening injuries, police said.

A rescue helicopter winched the four — two Japanese and two foreigners — to safety earlier in the day. They were found alive on Wednesday after being reported missing the previous day.
