One of Japan’s 100 Famous Mountains, Yotei-zan (羊蹄山, 1898m) is an iconic symbol of Hokkaido, its classic volcanic cone prominent on tourist posters and internet sites everywhere. In winter it makes the perfect panoramic backdrop for the hordes of international skiers on the Niseko slopes. In summer, the summit crater can be reached by no less than four hiking routes, all of them long and steep. On a clear day, high above the farmland and clouds, the circular walk around the crater rim is sublime. Here we describe the western route from the Kutchan/Hirafu 倶知安・比羅夫 side of the mountain.
