Located in northern part of Daisetsuzan National Park, Asahi-dake is the highest mountain in Hokkaido, which is part of Daisetsuzan Volcanic Group of the Ishikari Mountains.
It is said to be the first place where autumn foliage occurs, and the last one to melt the yearly snows in the entire Japan. In July, where summer is almost felt in the entire Japan, there are still snowfalls to be seen in Asahi-dake.
The alpine is beautiful all throughout the changing seasons.
