The Onuma Quasi-National Park is a nature-lover's paradise located 20 minutes out of Hakodate by express train. Mt.

The park offers a variety of activities such as leisurely strolls around the lakes, cycling, camping and pleasure boat rides out to the islands, promising visitors a fulfilling experience in Hokkaido's great outdoors. The Onuma International Exchange Plaza (Tourist Information Center), located in front of Onuma Koen Station, is a great source of advice regarding the different types of outdoor activities available at Onuma.

Frozen Winter Lakes Create an Adventure Wonderland of Snow & Ice

Frozen Winter Lakes Create an Adventure Wonderland of Snow & Ice

Onuma turns into a snow-covered wonderland in winter. The lakes develop a thick layer of ice, offering visitors an array of winter-only activities. "Ice Fishing for Wakasagi (Smelt)" is a popular winter activity in which fishing enthusiasts make hole in the ice through which small fish can be reeled in. There is nothing quite like the taste of these little fish when they're deep-fried fresh out of the water. Snowmobiles, buggies and sleds can also be driven on top of the ice, making for an exhilarating experience. With skiing and cross-country skiing options also available, Onuma has got it all when it comes to winter fun.
