Visible from the southern districts of Sapporo, the prominent pyramidal peak of Sapporo-dake (札幌岳, 1293m) appears as a worthy representative of the city, especially when crowned with snow. From the other side near Jozankei, however, the summit is a broad plateau gained after a steep ascent through forest. The usual summer route starts from near Hoheikyo Onsen, and is a fine day out. By using public bus services, however, a more adventurous expedition can be had by climbing the mountain via a wilder and less used path up the even steeper northern slopes and traversing over the summit to drop down the normal route to Jozankei.
