Mount Yotei is one of the most beautiful mountains in Japan. It’s an iconic landmark and has been visited and photographed by generations of travellers. It is located about 50 kilometres south-southwest of Otaru city.
Springtime is perhaps the most beautiful time of the year to see Mount Yotei, as the mountain is capped in snow and the flowers are starting to blossom.
It is 1,898 metres high and is similar in shape to Mount Fuji, which is Japan’s highest mountain. It is a solitary mountain and therefore can be seen easily from every side.
Mount Yotei is a volcano, but the last eruption was about 6,000 years ago. Many birds and animals live around this mountain making it a true sanctuary for wildlife. At the foot of this mountain, there are several springs of delicious water – making it the perfect end to a long trek.
There are no roads up the mountain, but four walking trails that will take you about 5 to 7 hours to climb to the top.
If you ever want to experience Mount Yotei from serene and natural surroundings you should head out into the countryside. From here you can view this mountain from afar where you can experience the breathtaking views of this magnificent mountain, and if visiting in spring don’t forget to take something warm to wear.
