At 2291m, Asahidake (旭岳) is the highest peak in Hokkaido and one of the 100 Famous Mountains (百名山 | hyakumeizan) of Japan. Combined with amazing views over the rugged volcanic scenery of the Daisetsuzan range and relatively easy access via a ropeway it’s not surprising that it's one of the most popular destinations for local hikers and visitors alike. While it is a straightforward climb from the upper ropeway station and back, if the weather conditions are good and you have the time it is well worth dropping off the back of the mountain and returning via the wild onsen at Nakadake to make a longer day of it.
