Located approximately 16.8 kilometres away from properties like Chatrium Niseko Japan, Mount Yōtei is simply a haven for thrill-seekers and adrenaline junkies. It’s a must-visit place while you’re holidaying at a preferred Niseko accommodation.
Mount Yōtei is also known as “Ezo Fuji”. This is due to its close resemblance to Mount Fuji, the most adored mountain in Japan. Ezo is what Hokkaido was known as many years earlier.
Mount Yōtei towers 1898 metres above its surroundings. Though it’s not as nearly as tall as Mount Fuji, its remarkable shape and size have made it prominent and stand out from the other mountains in the region. Mount Yōtei is an active volcano, though the last recorded eruption was 2,500 years ago.
A Paradise for Adventure Seekers
Mount Yōtei treats adventure-lovers to Hokkaido’s longest vertical ski descent; however, you will need to prepare a lot to ascend the mountain as it’s constantly beaten by relentless weather. It offers a difficult hike that will test your mettle.
Activities to Enjoy
Besides skiing, the surrounding area of Mount Yōtei offers plenty to see and do. Rivers here offer rafting and the abundance of wildlife will delight the nature lover.
