Hiking Mt. Yōtei

From Makkari Trailhead (371m) to Yōtei-zan (1989m) , 11km hike, 1500m ascent and decent

Hiking up 1’500m of altitude to the crater of Mt. Yōtei, Hokkaido’s Mt. Fuji, … and down again. A fantastic view of the enormous crater and the mystic Toya Lake in the south with an island floating in the middle.

8h after the start, the only thing we wanted was an onsen and a steaming bowl of udon

Great to soak in the outdoor bath at Makkari Onsen with a direct view of Yōtei-zan, reflecting our hard, but memorable day of hike.
