Magnificent nature stretches out from the foot of Hokkaido’s tallest mountain, Mt. Asahidake.
It is full of seasonal opportunities for enjoyment, from hiking to autumn leaves.
Located at the gateway to Daisetsuzan National Park, Higashikawa Town is where Hokkaido’s tallest mountain, Mt. Asahidake (2,291 m), stands and offers spectacular nature throughout all four seasons.
Many tourists visit from across Japan to enjoy mountain climbing, hiking, and cycling in summer (July) and Japan’s earliest autumn leaves in autumn (September).
In Tenninkyo (located inside the National Park), Hagoromo Falls, which ranks among Japan’s 100 Best Waterfalls, flows elegantly through the gorge.
Higashikawa Town draws mineral-rich underground water from the Daisetsuzan mountains. You can find safe, delicious agricultural produce as well as stylish cafés here.
