Sounkyo Gorge offers plenty of natural beauty, including a hot spring area as well as many waterfalls and rock formations.

Also, make sure you pay a visit to the rock formations, spectacular highlights within the gorge.

  • To visit Hokkaido, you must take a trip to the cloud, in the February, there was an ice-souk on the $300 yen, and if it were to take about three hours to get out of the town, it would be worth it, but there are plenty of hot springs hotels available to choose from, but the room is expensive. When it snows, there is a special atmosphere, and romantic numbers are high.

  • We came to play the 43rd Ice Waterfall Festival in the Cloud Gorge. The hotel is mostly in the vicinity of the activity venue. This trip to Beihai Road to play a few snow festival, in addition to the larger Sapporo, the other same type of feeling or the best play of the cloud gap. Tickets 300 yen, as if the whole Hokkaido unified price. We were almost there before the fireworks, and we started playing. Actually saw the fire conference, Snow Festival fireworks are dwarfed, a lot of snow festival side can see the donation call to support the local Snow festival to continue to do, do not know whether the funds are indeed tense, the size of the fireworks is relatively small can be understood. In addition to all the ice and snow shapes, fireworks, ice on the shrine, Cloud Canyon ice sculpture shape is still very rich and fun, photography is also very interesting. At night, the temperature is lower, do not stay outdoors for too long, the more the less tourists, the land continued to go back. Finally we rented a tire cushion to play on the ice slide, almost rental. When it comes to paying tribute to the lounge of the cloud, it is better to give power than any other place, to feel alive again as soon as you enter the room. Sapporo's Snow festival is large, but more food stalls, brand commercial venues, or the shelter of the wind, causing me to visit the Snow Festival in Sapporo, even drank hot red wine and hot Mojito did not slow down, are quickly frozen crying.
