Standing at the main Shari-dake hiking trailhead in eastern Hokkaido, Seigakuso is a large, bunker-like concrete building masquerading as a trailhead hut. It was built in 2004 after the old hut burned down. The hut has power, lighting, an immaculate interior, full kitchen, and bedding for rent. It's only open from mid-June till early October. The views from the raised outdoor deck across to the Okhotsk Sea are incredible.

Location

Seigakuso hut is located here, at the main Shari-dake hiking trailhead in eastern Hokkaido.

General notes

The old Seigakuso Hut used to stand about 1km further up into the forest. It burned down, so it was replaced with the current hut in 2004. Along with the new hut came a massive new parking area, clean public toilets, and a park-like area at the trailhead.

Capacity
Sleeps 50 people.
