Showashinzan, Sobetsu-cho
(3.7/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Showashinzan a part of your Sobetsu-cho vacation plans using our Sobetsu-cho itinerary builder.

  • It is a testament to that mountain suddenly appeared in the Showa era, this area was volcanic.

Showa shinzan as a tourist destination in the famous lot lined with souvenir shops, was crowded with foreign tourists. The Chinese were coming.
