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.

  • We visited Mt. Showa shinzan is close on the last day of the trip to Hokkaido toyako. This is the second time and visited the Showa shinzan in the job 20 years ago.

To move towards the left hand smoke more frequently will become visible. Is a lively eruption to Showa-shinzan tourists will clearly show its boldness.

Taking pictures is also good and can go up to the observation deck.
