Around Greenpia Onuma / Onumakoen
Onuma Quasi-National Park
In and around Mt. Hokkaido Komagatake and the lakes Onuma, Konuma, and Junsai that sit at its feet, an enduring legacy of past volcanic activity.
From spring to autumn this is a popular venue for cycling, running, sightseeing cruises, hiking and other outdoor activities; in winter, visitors enjoy riding snowmobiles or trying their hand at ice fishing for smelt.
The symbol of Onuma Quasi-national Park, Mt. Komagatake straddles the towns of Mori, Shikabe and Nanae, sending two peaks Sawaradake (1,113m) and Kengamine (1,131m) skyward.
During the summer months only visitors can hike the Akaigawa hiking trail as far as Umanose, but Mt. Komagatake is still an active volcano, despite having remained quiet for several years now, and may erupt without warning. We therefore ask you to check the safety details on the Mori Town website before setting foot on the mountain.
