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.

  • Stop when you drive in Lake Toya. Recommend matching Showa-shinzan sunny blue sky, to take a picture. Heading to Mt. Usu ropeway. So many souvenir shops-Dong, Toya tourist souvenirs here would buy a can or. By the way the parking is subject to charges.

  • 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. As fast as 20 years ago, was Showa-shinzan is now raising a plume still. To exit out of a bear in front Showa-shinzan approaching before one's eyes. 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.

  • Active volcano la ora does not have. It's still cloudy minutes kite flaring arrows activity. Before the arrival of the thought that just to go under before the Japanese volcanic activity is recorded. It has been an important material of volcanic activity, Japan. Taking pictures is also good and can go up to the observation deck.
