Asahidake Feb 2009
Loving this photo stream from flickr member meguroplitan in Japan.
Some shots that make my heart pound. Empty beauty on a pow day in Northern Japan.
“Mount Asahi (?? Asahi-dake?) is the tallest mountain in Hokkaid?, Japan. Part of the Daisetsuzan Volcanic Group of the Ishikari Mountains, it is located in the northern part of the Daisetsuzan National Park.
The mountain is popular with hikers in the summer and can be easily reached from Asahidake Onsen via Asahidake Ropeway.
Sugatami Pond, directly below the peak, is famous for its reflection of the peaks, snow, and steam escaping from the volcanic vents.”
