Hiking in Hokkaido: Daisetsuzan Mountain Range

According to a spokesperson at the Kurodake Ropeway, the aerial lift line operating there, the view has been especially vivid in recent years.

From the 7th station of Mt. Kurodake to its summit, one is surrounded by an explosion of contrasting green, red, and yellow colors. There should be good views of autumn colors at Mt. Kurodake, starting from the foot of the mountain, through the first half of October.
