大雪山国立公園観光案内 | Daisetsuzan National Park Travel

古くからアイヌの人たちが親しみと畏敬の念を込めて「カムイミンタラ」(神々が遊ぶ庭)と呼んできた、美しき大雪山。北海道の中央部に広がる日本最大の国立公園で、旭岳と十勝岳を主峰とする火山帯を囲むように、黒岳やトムラウシ山をはじめとする峰々と、石狩川水系の大峡谷が壮大な景観を形作っている。

夏には幾何学模様の残雪と可憐な高山植物、秋には鮮やかな紅葉、冬から春にかけては分厚い雪に覆われ、四季折々の変化に富んだ風景は多くの登山者を魅了する。また、山麓には野趣満点の温泉が湧いており、疲れた体と心を癒してくれることだろう。

Known as the Kamui Mintara (Playground of the Gods in Ainu), Daisetsuzan National Park (Nutapukaushipe) is home to great ridges, highland wetlands, deep gorges and international onsen resorts in Northern Hokkaido. Although it can get busy from summer to autumn, as well as in ski season. You can admire the spectacular mountain views, try the great traverse or downhill skiing from both Asahi-dake and Sounkyo’s onsen villages. Daisetsuzan is an easy day trip or overnighter from Asahikawa.
