More Info

Situated just to the north of Honshu, Hokkaido is Japan’s second largest island and chock-full of incredible hiking opportunities. Outside of the aforementioned locations, there are plenty of other great parks and natural areas to explore on foot.

Other popular hiking spots include Shikotsu-Tōya National Park and Akan Mashu National Park. The former is home to Mount Yotei, which is the eighth tallest mountain on the island and among the most popular to climb. Shikotsu-Tōya is also home to Noboribetsu hot springs, which make for a great evening activity after a long day of hiking.

Meanwhile Akan Mashu National Park, one of the two oldest national parks on the island, is home to volcanic craters and forests. Hiking around the edge of Lake Mashu is quite popular as is climbing Mount Meakan and enjoying the views from the top.
