The Official Hokkaido Adventure Travel Guide


All the seasons are treasures to behold

“Daisetsuzan National Park” is the largest national park in Japan including Mt. Asahidake which is the highest mountain in Hokkaido., The environment and ecosystems unique to the cold and alpine regions create distinctive landscapes, such as large colonies of alpine plants and the earliest autumn leaves in Japan.
Asahikawa city, located in the Kamikawa basin formed by the rivers flowing from Daisetsuzan National Park, is the hub of this area and its population is approximately 330 thousand.
Thanks to rich nature resources, Asahikawa city has developed primary industries such as agriculture and forestry, and secondary industries such as local sake, soy sauce, and furniture manufacturing. The rice and fresh vegetables harvested in this area, sake brewing and nationally famous “Asahikawa Furniture” are gifts of the blessings of Daisetsuzan National Park.
