Asahidake (旭岳, 2291m) is Hokkaido's highest peak, and arguably one of the island's most accessible. It is the highest point on the expansive Daisetsuzan volcanic group, dominating central Hokkaido. For prepared hikers, Asahidake can be a great way to get a taste for the greater Daisetsuzan Range's alpine areas. Accessed from the upper station of the Asahidake Ropeway, if you're lucky enough to visit in clear weather, magnificent views across the northern Daisetsuzan Range and its impressive volcanic steam vents are only 2.5hrs away. At the foot of the mountain are a number of onsen to choose from for a post-hike soak, and plenty of trendy cafes further down the hills in Higashikawa Town.
