#2 of 12 in Things to do in Sobetsu-cho
Ride along Usuzan Ropeway, taking in far-reaching views from the surrounding countryside to the smoldering peaks of Mt. Usu. Once at the top, you can observe steaming vents and the Pacific beyond at the crater basin observation deck, less than ten minutes on foot from the gondola station. Feast your eyes on the huge crater (formed in 1977 during the third of four eruptions that century), as it bellows great plumes of steam.

    Ropeway is recommended to be sure, ride on the right side. Showa shinzan and Lake Toya is both beautiful to watch. Takes way less than an hour if you have time if you came up with this, but walking towards the outer track and has very beautiful scenery can be seen.

    The place to go if you go close. Perfect summer stroll. Views of Showa-shinzan and Lake Toya is spectacular. Please try again. However, expect a restaurant like that.
