Mt. Pinneshiri

This 703-meter-high mountain is located in the center of Nakatombetsu. The trail behind the roadside station is about four kilometers long, and it takes about two hours to reach the summit, making it perfect for beginners. From the top, you can see the Sea of Okhotsk on the east side, Rishirifuji on the west side, and the island of Sakhalin far in the distance on the north side.

Low humidity and temperatures result in superb powdery snow during the winter, which draws many to the mountains for backcountry skiing and snowboarding. After descending the mountain, make sure to stop by Pinneshiri Hot Springs. It's a great place to soothe your tired muscles and releive a variety of symptoms such as nerve pain and stress. This spring is popular with locals for warming you to the core and making your skin silky smooth.
