The site of the 2008 G8 Summit, the Lake Toya area offers wonderful hikes on Mount Usu, an active volcano with its last eruption in 2000. The craters that formed from this recent eruption are a sight to behold. Mount Usu has a younger sibling, 'Showa Shinzan'. Named for the Showa Emperor, it is a real baby in mountain terms, having only formed properly as a result of a series of earthquakes between 1943 and 1945. The peaceful Toyako onsen offers hikers the opportunity for a well-earned spot of rest and relaxation.
