Early July 2006
Mt. Daisetsu-san National Park is the largest national park in Japan. The area is as same size as Kanagawa Prefecture. There are some routes to reach the top area of the mountain, we took Asahidake aerial tram from Sanroku Station which is 1,100 meters or 3,600 feet above sea level to Sugatami Station which is 1,600 meters or 5,250 feet above sea level.

We drove to Sanroku Station. There is a shuttle bus form Asahikawa St to Sanroku Station. The bus stops at Asahikawa Airport. But there are only three services in a day, you need to check the schedule in advance. Rent a car is the best way to move in Hokkaido. The National Park opens July 1st every year.

Please enjoy beautiful scenes and flowers.
