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. Oakan-dake (雄阿寒岳1370m) is a classically shaped volcanic peak rising steeply out of a sea of primeval forest. While no longer active like its partner, it nevertheless gives a very worthwhile climb past some pretty small lakes and up through forests and alpine zones to a panoramic rocky summit.
