Showashinzan, Sobetsu-cho

3.7
#2 of 9 in Things to do in Sobetsu-cho
A relatively young addition to the area's landscape, Showashinzan was created naturally in 1943, after lava broke through the ground after a series of strong earthquakes. Today, the 398 m (1,306 ft) tall mountain, which often lets out volcanic steam, represents a major tourist attraction. Take the ropeway to the top of Mt. Usu, another area attraction, or enjoy the walking trail with panoramic vistas of the surrounding nature, Pacific Ocean, and Lake Toya.

  • This is a place you can feel the Earth are very active and. From the rising steam and desolate mountain, still working this mountain you can see how. Of this I have been feeling compared to the time it was 30 years ago, souvenir shops, such as lonely.
