Mount Yotei, located in Shikotsu-Toya National Park, is one of Hokkaido’s most famous mountains and is a renowned skiing and outdoor activities spot. The mountain, which is actually an inactive volcano, stands at 1,900 meters tall and is abundant in natural beauty. It is known by many names: Yezo Fuji, Ezo Fuji, Makkari Nupuri, and Mount Shiribeshi. Yezo and Ezo are the old names for Hokkaido and thus, Yezo Fuji and Ezo Fuji translate to “Hokkaido’s Fuji.” Mount Yotei earned these nicknames due to its resemblance to the iconic Fuji.
