Mt Meakan-dake is the main peak of the Akan mountain range, located southwest of Lake Akan. This 1,499-meter active volcano can be seen well from the Onnetoh parking lot. There are three mountain trail courses, and the most commonly used are the Meakan Onsen Course (about 4 hours 10 minutes return trip) and the Onnetoh Course (about 4 hours 50 minutes return trip). Either route offers chances to observe high-altitude alpine plants and the unique summit scenery of a volcanic mountain.
