A rugged, volcanic landscape peppered with hot springs and caldera lakes
Volcanic activity has shaped Shikotsu-Toya National Park for thousands of years. Mighty volcanoes, bubbling hot springs and awe-inspiring caldera lakes are the backdrop of a park alive with endemic flora and fauna.
The park lends itself to adventure: hiking through the dramatic landscape of Jigokudani's steaming fumaroles, kayaking across the vast Lake Shikotsu and trekking the forests of Hohei Gorge.
