  • by

Mount Asahi, the highest on the island of Hokkaido in Japan, loved by walkers, even in winter it seems.


Asahi-dake, Mount Asahi, the highest mountain on the island of Hokkaido, the most northern island of the Japanese archipelago. Mount Asahi is located in the northern part of the National Park Daisetsuzan.

The mountain is very popular with skiers, snowboarders and hikers, but regular ones will arrive in summer, which have at their disposal the Asahidake cable car. Much appreciated the “pond” of Sugatami that, because place directly below the summit, allows photographers to play with the reflections of its waters.
