Toishi-yama 砥石山 rises 826m in the southern suburbs of Sapporo city and is easily accessible by bus or taxi. There are three trails to the summit, though the northern approach is rather defaced by an ugly active quarry. From the other side, though, you can wander into quiet forested hills that make it hard to believe you are only a few miles from the centre of one of Japan's largest cities. With flowers along the stream in spring and ablaze with colour in autumn it makes a great little escape from the bustling streets below.
