Volcanic scenery and panoramic views of the Akan Caldera
This loop trail takes you from Meakan Onsen to the summit of Mount Meakan, then down to Lake Onneto for a fantastic view of the volcanoes and forests from the lakeshore. From the trailhead, the path goes through a Sakhalin spruce forest. From the Fifth Station of the trail on the Meakan Onsen route, you can see views of the azure Lake Onneto and the Daisetsuzan mountain range in the distance.
From the summit of Mount Meakan, an active volcano, you can see more active peaks to the north and south. The descent towards Mount Akan-Fuji takes you through a meadow carpeted with alpine flora in summer. Continue to Onneto Campground, then take the woodland trail along the lakeshore and through the forest to return to Meakan Onsen.
