The centerpieces of the Akan-Mashu National Park are the two volcanic peaks of Meakan-dake (one of Japan’s 100 Famous Mountains) and Oakan-dake. Separated by Lake Akan with its popular resort, in Ainu they were known respectively as the Female Mountain and the Male Mountain, and this nomenclature has carried over into their Japanese names as well. Of the two, Meakan-dake (雌阿寒岳, 1499m) is perhaps the more interesting with its spectacular active volcanic crater providing a thrilling airy traverse. The circular route includes the bonus option of climbing the perfect subsidiary cinder cone of Akanfuji (阿寒富士, 1476m) on the way.
