Daisetsuzan National Park大雪山国立公園
This national park in the central part of Hokkaido is Japan’s largest national park and includes mountains such as Mt. Asahidake, Mt. Kudodake and Mt. Tokachi, as well as an abundance of rare alpine flora including Oxytropis japonica var. sericea Koidz (field locoweed), avens, weaselsnout and rare alpine fauna such as Parnassius eversmanni (yellow Apollo butterfly) and arctic hare. The area bustles with many mountain climbers due to the numerous hiking spots, climbing roads, and ropeways. The Sounkyo Visitor Center located in the area offers information on the nature observation course in Daisetsuzan National Park, and also exhibits material and images on Daisetsuzan nature (available in English, Chinese, Korean, Thai).

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.
