Hiking Mt. Kamuishiri in Hokkaido, Japan
Kamuishiri-yama (神威尻山, 947m) is an unassuming peak about 2 hours north of Sapporo City. It's a popular one for a couple of reasons. First, the loop-trail is well maintained, with well-spaced steps on the steeper sections. Secondly, it allows access to the range of mountains approaching Mt. Shokanbetsu (暑寒別岳) and Mt. Pinneshiri (ピンネシリ山) without the arduous approach. Expect expansive views along the ridgelines.
