Trip Planner Asia  /  Japan  /  Hokkaido  /  Akan National Park
(5/5 based on 20+ reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: nature
A large, protected area of volcanic craters and forests, Akan National Park draws visitors with its vast, clear caldera lakes and hot springs. The lakes provide a habitat for marimo, a bright green spherical algae found nowhere else in the country. Towering peaks surround the lakes, featuring otherworldly volcanic areas with sulphur fumaroles. Most tours of Akan National Park include the onsens, traditional Japanese spas, which make use of the naturally warmed water bubbling up from the volcanic hot springs. Add Akan National Park and other destinations to your itinerary using our Japan travel itinerary maker, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
