Niseko Shinrin Park
This forest park is located at the foot of Mt. Annupuri, and is considered to be the best place to enjoy an early morning walk with singing birds providing enchanting background music.
Many visitors go there to enjoy bird watching and to savor the scents and sounds of the forest.
Annupuri Summer Gondola
Just a 10-minute ride by gondola from the foot of the mountain takes you to 1,000 meters above sea level. From the sightseeing tower at the top you can see not only Mt. Yotei but also a panorama stretching to Lake Toya, Mt. Usu and Funka Bay.
The best viewing point in Niseko, where there are beautiful views of two cherry blossom trees, Mt. Yotei, and fields.
The park is about a 7-minute walk from JR Niseko Station. At about the time of Golden Week (end of April to early May) people gather from all over to see the vast number of small grass flowers in full bloom.
