Mt. Yotei is located in Shikotsu-Toya National Park, Hokkaido Japan. It is an active stratovolcano. also called Yezo Fuji or Ezo Fuji. If Mount Fuji is a symbol of Japan, it can be said that Mt. Yotei is a symbol of Hokkaido.

I went there end of April. The mountain was still having ice. All look like beautiful. This is my first time to see the path of skiing. It look really attractive. I would like to try playing skiing in some day.

Stunning mountain rising from a flat plain. Big surprise if you've not seen it before. Many ski fields have Yoteisan as a backdrop, making it even more surreal.

This is quite a spectacular mountain and not expected as you drive from Sapporo through the hills to lake Toya. As you go over Nakayama Toge it sits there like a smaller Mount Fuji in a typical volcano cone. Once down on the volcanic flats...More

Had a ski tour setup with Black Diamond tours and had a chance to skin up the volcano to ski down some fresh pow. Beautiful views, challenging experience and a memory you'll never forget. Fill up at the hot spring at the base before your...More
