Mt. Apoi (Apoi Dake)
Mt. Apoi (elevation 810m) is close to the city, yet you can fully feel the alpine with just an easy 3 hour hike to the summit.
Standing on "Umanose (back of a horse)" , a ridge 600 meters above sea level, you can enjoy a magnificent panorama of the Pacific Ocean and the Hidaka Mountains.
Despite its low altitude of 810 meters, alpine plants are extremely diverse at Mt. Apoi, including about 20 endemic species. Those unique alpine plants are designated as a national special natural monument.
After the enjoyable hike, you can now reward yourself with relaxing bath time at the large communal bath at Apoi Sanso (Apoi mountain lodge), located at the foot of the mountain!
