Mt. Yotei (Ezo Fuji)羊蹄山(蝦夷富士)
Mt. Yotei is a renowned mountain that is emblematic of Hokkaido and also counts among Japan’s One Hundred Most Celebrated Mountains. Located in the southern part of Hokkaido’s Shiribeshi area (northwest Iburinokuni), it is a stratovolcano with an elevation of 1,898 meters. Because of its beautiful shape which is similar to Mt. Fuji, it is also called Ezo Fuji. In addition to more than 100 varieties of alpine plants, many mammals and birds, including Ezo red foxes and Hokkaido squirrels, also live there nurturing a rich ecosystem.

Hokkaido Main Areas
Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
