Showashinzan, Sobetsu-cho

(3.7/5 based on 140+ 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.

  • Uplift in the eruption of Mt. Usu and Mt. Showa shinzan was. See plants one even does not grow. Environment because it increases the temperature of the ground vegetation grows so it's not. Of course you cannot enter. But to tell you that I'm looking at this earth is alive.
