At the foot of Mt. Yotei, Lake Hangetsu is nestled in a deep virgin forest. There is a walking path through a forest of giant mizunara, Yezo spruce, and Erman's birch trees, where you can enjoy the natural beauty of Mt. Yotei peeking out from time to time and the lake that seems to sink into the forest. It used to be a bustling tourist spot with boats for rent, but now it is a quiet place where you can just sit back and enjoy the nature.
Niseko, known as a mecca for winter sports, is a major resort area surrounded by the beautiful Mount Yotei and the rolling peaks of the Niseko mountain range. The abundant spring water from the volcanoes creates beautiful lakes, rivers, and hot springs that enrich the area. People from all over the world are attracted to this magnificent natural environment where they can enjoy the outdoors all year round.
