Sept 23 (Wed) - 27 (Sun) Akan Lake in Hokkaido

Post by applenyc »

Anyone interested in camping, hiking, kayaking in Hokkaido?

You will need to catch an early morning flight to Kushiro on Sept 23 and take a direct airport shuttle (65 min) to Akan Lake to arrive by 1:15pm on Sept 23. If you arrive later than that, no worries, we can sort it out. I will be already in Hokkaido and will make it there on my own. We will meet at Akan Bus Terminal at 1:15pm and head over to the camp site to set up the tent.

The tent site is only about 10 min away. It is free with access to onsen for feet, water and bathroom. Supermarket, restaurants and convenience stores are all within a short walk distance of about 5 min. No need to bring anything elaborate to cook unless you'd like to. It is situated right in front of the beautiful Akan Lake where we can watch and sunrise and sunset nd go on hikes and kayaking.
#If you are not comfortable or equipped to camp, there are plenty of lodges in Akan Lake. Please feel free to book a lodge.

Hikes from Akan Lake are not strenuous and will take about half a day.
