More Info

Daisetsuzan National Park, situated on the northern island of Hokkaido, is the largest natural reserve in the country. Hikers of every level will be enchanted by the colors of the forest, the expanse of the valleys and meadows, and the size of the mountains and volcanoes. Fields of wildflowers dazzle hikers as they trek along winding trails. Daisetsuzan is notorious for its rich flora and fauna, including more than half of Hokkaido’s alpine plants. The summit of Asahidake (2,290m), the highest peak in Hokkaido, is a fun challenge for visitors, as are the surrounding mountains, many reaching over 2,000 meters. Other adventurers can enjoy a healthy supply of gorgeous trails that are supplemented by flowing water, breathtaking ridges, and charming forests.

How to Get There

Daisetsuzan is centrally located on Hokkaido, so getting there is fairly straightforward from the major cities of the island. The Asahikawa Airport is the closest hub to the northwest of the park. Trains run to the park, and traveling from Sapporo via train should take just under four hours. There is other public transportation available to the park, though its reliability is questionable. Rental cars are also available at major airports and cities.

Jun did an incredible job guiding us through Daisetsuzan National Park. He was attentive, friendly and courteous. His knowledge of the local flora, fauna, and landscape was superb (that rock garden in particular left a deep impression on me). His cooking was superb. And, we felt like we experienced aspects of the Japanese outdoors and Japanese culture that are very hard to reach.
