Mount Asahi's Stunning Contrasts

Picture-postcard ponds and powerful steam vents

Asahi-dake (Mount Asahi) in the Daisetsuzan National Park is a magical place: You can see and listen to the power of the volcano while, simultaneously experiencing an extraordinarily beautiful atmosphere. Thanks to the ropeway the ponds and steam vents are surprisingly easily accessible. From the top of the ropeway just follow the short and mostly flat walking trails, which take you around the stunning ponds and powerful steam vents, passing fields with alpine flowers in summer and fantastic autumn colors in September/October—a truly spectacular and unique landscape.
