Daisetsu Mountainous Area iss designated as the National Park of Japan and the fauna of the area is varied but the kinds of animals living at this altitude are limited because of the harsh coldness in winter.
Pika(rock rabbit, whistling hare), chipmunk, bears and grouse are living on the highland.
The steam with the smell of sulfur kept erupting from the crater all the year round.
The kinds of animals are limited but the actual number of animals is quite a few.
While you are trekking, you would find some of them beside the trail.
Only walking around the station of the lift gives you the tips of the abundant wild lives, I am sure !
