Hiking in Ikaho


Last updated: December 21, 2020

Scenic hikes on the doorstep of this historic onsen town

Ikaho Onsen is halfway up Mt. Haruna (1,449 m), an inactive volcano with a caldera lake, Lake Haruna, at 1,100 meters. There is a ropeway to the peak, but the hike is a great way to enjoy the abundance of nature along the trail, including bamboo grass and cherry trees. You can hike the route year round but will need crampons during winter.

Another hiking option is Mt. Mizusawa (1,194 m). One of the trailheads is at Mizusawa Kannon Temple, famous for the many udon noodle restaurants on its approach. Fuel up here for the trek, then unwind in an onsen in Ikaho’s historic town after you’ve finished your hike.
