Asaidake in Kamikawa!

by Gen(Kamikawa Sub-prefectural Office) 

Before the sunshine burns the surface of the hillside of Mt.Asahidake,  the mountain may be the most comfortable to hike in this season even for the novices. 
It will take 90 minutes from the the station of lift to reach the summit where the peak of Mt.Kurodake can be seen so clearly that everybody is tempted to walk along the ridges between those two peaks.
                                                     Sugatami-no-ike means the full-length mirror pond in Japanese.   Sugatami-no-ike can be reached by walk for 15 minutes from the station of the lift. In summer, so many people going up the trail to the peak can be seen from this pond that you may imagine the queue of ants on the ground.  Compared to the peaks in the main island of Japan, the mountains in Hokkaido are easy to climb because the hillsides are not so steep. 
But, absolutely we have to wear the bells to avoid brown bear attack in the mountains. Speaking for Mt.Asahidake, there is almost no fear of happening to come across the bear because no food can be seen on the surface of the mountain and no plant is growing up around the crater.
Mt.Asahidake has the highest peak in Hokkaido but it is only 2,291 meters high. it is located in Daisetsuzan Area in the center part of Hokkaido Island. The indigenous people of Hokkaido Ainu called this area "Kamuimintara" which means the garden where the Gods are romping around. There are some comfortable accommodations on the hillside and at the foot of this mountain. My favorites are Hotel Bearmonte, Hotel DeerValley, http://www.bearmonte.jp/    and Hotel La Vista http://www.hotespa.net/hotes/daisetsuzan/ . Each hotel has its own atmosphere and characters. Even in winter, without skiing or snow boarding, comfortable stay in this area is guaranteed like in Switzerland.
In every season, various kind of activities are enjoyable. Of course, a very comfortable camping site with cabins and free hot spa is at the foot of the mountain.
