  • Coming by local Bus from the Lake Toya we went up the volcano by the Mount Usu Ropeway. Walking to the Usu Crater Basin Observation Deck we had to walk about 250 meters. Was worth the effort!  more »
  • We took the local bus from Lake Toya to the ropeway in winter. It's cold on the mountain. Great views though. We didn't spend much time in the village at the foot of the ropeway though.  more »

  • Went there during August 2018, the hike was very nice, not difficult at all. The landscape was so great.
  • The trail is a good hike, just be prepared for the parking costs and the buses of tourists in the autumn season. Hiking the other side of the mountains is also great and gives you a great chance to see the power of the 2000 earthquake on the houses and roads the passed through the area. There is free parking available on the western side.
