The beautiful  Rishiri island, located off the coast of Hokkaido, Japan is a marvellous place visit. It is a small island, yet despite its small size it is absolutely full of gorgeous scenery. Thus making it the perfect place to enjoy a day long hiking tour.

While it could be easy to rent a car and see the entirety of the island in a few short hours, on this hiking tour, you will have the chance to thoroughly immerse yourself in it. You will have the opportunity to not only see, but to also learn and enjoy the lush, vibrant Rishiri island.

The trip will begin at approximately 8:30 am. We will meet at the Maruzen Inn. After the group is gathered, every participant will have to fill out the appropriate registration forms. After that, we will begin the wonderful hiking tour.

The first highlight of this hike is the Rishiri island’s virgin forest. Within the forest, I will take you to a special location that has an abundance of gorgeous alpine flowers. Midway through the trip, we will stop for a delicious and healthy lunch. Afterwards, we will continue exploring the island, passing by and enjoying 2 wonderful and famous springs. You will also have the chance to observe the island’s wildlife, and enjoy some truly memorable views of the island’s landscape, including Mount Rishiri, before the hike ends at approximately 5:00 pm.

The pace of the trip is easy and comfortable. Hence making it perfect for hiking beginners. So if you want to leisurely enjoy the Rishiri island in a way that you can really take in the beauty it possesses, then this day long hike is for you. Just send me a request, and I’ll be happy to guide you.

I can also guide you to the summit of Mount Rishiri on this day long hiking trip as well.
