Onuma Quasi National Park By Land & Water

DETAILS

  • 5
    hrs Estimate Duration
  • Hiking

Cruise through the serene waters of Lake Onuma, and then hike around its enchanting coastline as a prelude to a wine sampling at one of Hokkaido’s wineries.


Enjoy a scenic drive to Onuma Quasi-National Park, a beautiful landscape of forests and volcanically formed lakes. The largest lake is Onuma, which filled in an ancient caldera atop Mt. Akagi-yama.


Upon arriving, embark on a boat and cruise around the shimmering lake, which is typically calm and brilliantly blue. Being a volcanic lake, the water is relatively acidic and somewhat uninhabitable for marine creatures. Even so, you may well see waterfowl, ruddy kingfishers and white-tailed eagles soaring overhead.


The most dramatic sight (weather dependent) in the park will surely be Mount Komagatake, an active volcano that dominates the landscape to the north. You should have an excellent view of the graceful mountain while cruising the lake and later while hiking a nature trail through the park. Expect to enjoy panoramic views of southwestern Hokkaido as you cross the bridges linking the small islands in Lake Onuma.


Grape vines flourish in Hokkaido’s rich volcanic soil, and on the way back to the pier, you’ll stop a winery to taste of the local product.
