If you want to enjoy Daisetsuzan area but you only have 1 day, this program is for you!

Lying in the center of Hokkaido, Daisetsuzan has the largest primitive natural environment in Japan.

I’ll take you to Kurodake (1,984 m) and Asahidake (the highest mountain on the island of Hokkaido, at 2,291 m). It will be a great hiking experience, enjoying the beautiful landscapes of this area.

The most exciting point of this hiking is its geographic view point. Kurodake and Asahidake are both active volcanoes, so a volcanic crater will welcome you at the peak of each of them. Also, a wide variety of alpine plants will please you during the trekking.

This one of the most popular and my favorite hiking tour in Daisetsuzan. Please contact me if you want to join me!
