Mt Yotei is just one of Hokkaido's mountains that draws visitors to view the colours. On the other side of the valley Mt Annupuri better known for it's skiing also presents a stunning tapestry of foliage. Fukidashi Park is also a local favourite and a draw card in its own right. Hokkaido in fact is brimming with autumn sight seeing opportunities, know in japan as Koyo the islands cooler temperatures make it the first to welcome the changing leaves and one of the most spectacular. The first area and one of the most specatcular is the Daisetsusan National park where you can enjoy mountain hikes or viewing from the Asahi Dake or Kuro Dake ropeways.
