Mt. Chokai

Outdoor Activities Beautiful Scenery
Free Admission

Mt. Chokai is not only an active volcano, it is also a somewhat rare free-standing mountain and the highest peak in the Tohoku region. It is also known as a hiking spot and it boasts several trails to climb the slopes, but visitors should note that reaching the summit requires a difficult climb. Those wishing for a more casual trek can choose one of the easier trails on which they can still enjoy the beautiful nature (especially the colorful foliage in autumn) covering the mountain and surrounding Lake Chokai.
