Autumn has arrived in the alpine zone of the Daisetsuzan National Park. To the indigenous
people of Hokkaido, it is known as 'Kamui Mintara,' or the `Playground of the Gods.'
Tokachidake is a live volcano at the southern end of the national park. The climb ascends
about 1,000 meters from the valley to the sub-alpine zone. The ascent averages around 7
percent with the steepest incline 14 percent coming in the last 3 km. This day features on
our `Ride Furano/Niseko' trip.
