Introduction of Taisetsu Area

Daisetsuzan National Park, the widest in Japan, is home to the Daisetsuzan mountain range, a gentle chain of peaks around 2,000 meters high, including Asahidake, Hokkaido’s highest peak. The Taisetsu area, which consists of one city and eight towns, including Asahikawa City, located on the west side of the Daisetsuzan National Park, offers a wide variety of activities that take advantage of the mountain and river terrain, such as mountain climbing, cycling, and rafting in summer, and skiing in winter, where you can experience the best powder snow.
