Showashinzan, Sobetsu-cho

#1 of 16 in Things to do in Sobetsu-cho
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 was my first visit with the real thing that I learned in textbooks a long time ago. The view from the ropeway was also spectacular. Because it was a train and a bus use, i was sorry to visit.

  • It is said that Showa Shinzan is a mountain that the wheat field was able to be made by the rise in showa 19. It is said that masao Mimatsu, an amateur volcano researcher, bought the land to support farmers who had lost their wheat fields and to protect the volcano. A statue of Masao Mimatsu was standing towards Showa Shinzan. It is a pity that it is not so close because Showa Shinzan is an active volcano where fumes are still rising. At the foot of the mountain was a walking path called showa shinzan open air museum.
