Rishiri —and its neighbor island, Rebun— are Japan’s northernmost islands, lying about 20 km off the coast of Hokkaido. Come and discover Rishiri’s natural scenery on this half-day trek!
I propose to take you to Mount Pon, a small 444 m mountain right behind Mount Rishiri (the main volcano at the center of the island). Pon means ‘little’ in Ainu, the Japanese indigenous peoples’ language.
This is a tour designed for you to observe and listen to the sounds of nature, while walking at a relaxing pace and enjoy talking to each other. In the island, we’ll meet at Maruzen Inn, Reramosir. After a short stop at Hokuroku Camp site, we will start our tour. We’ll be walking on a paved moderate incline trail on the rich forests of Rishiri.
Then, we’ll get to Kanrosen spring (Nector or tasty water fountain) and fill up our water bottles! Up from there, we’ll start walking on a mountain trail.
We’ll be walking for about 1 hour, spending some quiet time in nature and observing the beautiful seasonal alpine flowers. From Mount Pon we’ll enjoy a 360 degree panoramic view (although this may depend on the weather!). The trip will have a total length of 2.5 hours.
Would you like to take a relaxed hike and enjoy the natural beauty of Rishiri island? Send me a request and book this trip!
