Let's enjoy hiking in deep forest of Meakandake, Hokkaido!
Meakandake (Mt. Meakan: 1,499m) is located south-west of Lake Akan. It is also called Machineshiri, which means 'female mountain' in Ainu language. Ainu is the indigenous peoples of northern part of Japan. While we make a slow ascent through the forests, a lot of beautiful alpine plants welcome us.
Then, at about 1,200m high, we reach the shoulder of Mt. Meakan. Later, the broad and slow gravel ground slope will appear from behind lava ridge. From the summit of Meakandake, we can enjoy a fabulous panorama looking down towards the lakes.
Get a glimpse of what the trek there is like by reading this testimonial from a very pleased couple of hikers!
As for Kikuo-san, we both really liked her. She is very pleasant. A bit quiet spoken in a good way. She obviously knows the Akan region very well, as she lives inside the national park. She has very responsible and well organised. I would have her guide us again, when we go back to the area.
