We went here in the first week of June and it was very quiet in the ropeway. The price signs were only in Japanese but the lady at the ticket off spoke pretty good English. Beware that if you want to go with the second...More

I went in Oct and managed to get the autumn leaves at the base of the mountain and snow at the top. If you are not driving yourself, there are tour bus trips from Sapporo or you can go via public transport from Asahikawa. Great...More

A gorgeous hike with easy access and well-cared for trail. Once you summit Kurodake, make sure to spend a few more hours summiting other peaks and exploring the area. We spent maybe 8 hours total in the park. The hut made for a nice place...More

Arrived around late afternoon, took both the ropeway and the chairlift. Views from the chairlift was fantastic and we were very lucky to have a clear sky. It got pretty chilly near the end of the ride due to the strong winds despite the sunny...More

Ropeway/cable car goes up every 20mins or so during June when we visited and English language is minimal with lots of misunderstandings about timing so just know the schedule was at 1.20pm and 1.40pm etc... They also told us no snow but boy were we...More

As a ski resort, there is only one chairlift which leads to largely beginner/moderate runs. The real skiing joy is in the backcountry. The trek up to Mt Kurodake and ski down to the chairlift is the highlight. The views up there were outstanding. I...More
