Rishiri, a small volcanic island located almost 20 km off Hokkaido’s north-west coast, has a unique variety of alpine flowers. Do you want to visit this flower heaven?
This 1-day hiking tour is an amazing opportunity for flower lovers traveling to Japan.
In April, when snow starts melting, the season of flowers begins and it lasts until September. From the coast and up to Mount Rishiri —located at the heart of the island—, you’ll be able to admire a hundreds of flowers.
Rebun Island, Rishiri’s neighbor island, is another great spot to observe them.
Every week there’s a flower variation, so you depending when you get there you’ll see a different place.
Because of this, the tour route will also change every day. I will decide the best places to take you based on the seasonal flowers.
You can join this tour in the morning or in the afternoon. We’ll be hiking for two hours, and the whole trip will take between 3-4 hours.
Let’s explore together the beautiful flower scenery of this Japanese island. Send a request to book this hiking trip!

I was born on the island of Rishiri in 1969. I still live here today! Since my childhood, I have spent most of my time in the sea, going fishing, and in the mountain going skiing. I’m a ski guide (level 2) from the Japanese Mountain Guide Association. I’m the only one on the island. I have reached the summit of Rishiri more than 500 times… It’s my great pleasure to guide here and let people from all around the world discover this beautiful island all year round. Please feel free to get in touch with me if you are looking for a local expert to guide you in Rishiri. Besides mountain guiding, I'm managing a family hostel here so I can help you with the accommodation as well.
