At the Iwaobetsu bus stop, 5km north of Utoro, this is a popular base for hikers, open only in summer. It's scruffy and basic, but it's also pretty deep in the park, where you might spot some of the local wildlife. Note that there are only three buses daily here and no amenities nearby. Delicious dinners are ¥2500 per person.

Iwaobetsu Onsen and the trailhead up Rausu-dake are 4km up the road.
