Showashinzan, Sobetsu-cho

4.0
#1 of 7 in Parks in Usu-gun
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.

  • It's free to climb up towards the top of the mountain, 0/1955, such as Regulation No. Closer hand to fumaroles, touching on hot rocks, hot strong sulfur smell and shoe soles was amazing in my elementary school. Showed the Rocky reddish hem, but now that shoulder grows trees, enveloped in greenery of 43 mountain (approximately Miyama-Meiji-shinzan) will soon. Resilience of nature's wonders.
