The highest peak in Hokkaido, Asahi-dake rises formidably to 2,291 m (7,516 ft) above sea level. Winter on this volcanic mountain brings skiers and snowboarders, relishing the powder of its unspoiled slopes, while in summertime, hikers make the hearty ascent to the summit, complete with steaming vents and a crater. The trek from the foot of the mountain is a grueling 4.5-hour slog, worthy for experienced hikers; if you want something a little less intensive, take the healthy hike after riding the gondola up to Sugatami. From here you can either follow a 60-minute circular trail, observing ponds and sulphurous vents, or walk for roughly two hours on a well-marked path up and along the crater's edge. Have your camera ready at the summit for some dramatic views and steaming bellows. You'll need hiking boots, plenty of water and snacks, and altitude-appropriate dress.

ロープウェイを降りた後、７００ｍで姿見の池に行けますが、ほんの２００ｍ程で第一展望台に到着します。足の悪い妻でも到着できましたので、ちょっと頑張れば、行けると思います。そして、そこは３６０度の素晴らしい景色が広がっています。 more »After getting off the ropeway, you can go to the pond of the figure viewing at 700m, but you will arrive at the first observatory in about 200m. I think that I can go if I work hard a little because i was able to arrive even by the wife who had bad legs. And there is a wonderful view of 360 degrees.
It's 360 degrees beautiful View. There also have many trail to serve for trek lover. I love it. more »
Beautiful mountain. Berg Bahn gets you to about 1600-1700 meters, and the summit tops out at 2291. Be ready for wind!
Very beautiful place to visit.
