■Lake Mashu

This lake is called “The lake of the God” in Ainu. It’s one of the highest transparency lakes in the world. The water color is called ‘Mashu blue’. Lake Mashu is famous for its fogginess lake but it is truly ‘The lake of God’ when it’s sunny.

■Sea of clouds (Tsubetsu pass/Bihoro pass)

Tsubetsu pass

This is the sea of clouds at 6 oclock in the morning. It looks like a carpet made by clouds.

It was cloudy and rainy at first. It’s gradually getting sunny after driving the pass.

Bihoro pass

Here's the sea of clouds at 5am. Once we arrived the top of the pass, it’s still foggy.

We were waiting for 30min, we finally saw the sea of clouds, just for one moment though.

We highly recommend you to go there after you check the live cameras to see whether there are the sea of clouds or not, otherwise you might miss it.

You can walk in a river beside a promenade with boots.

This river is the origin of hot springs so it’s warm. Have you ever experienced a warm river before?

(Boots are limited so you may not borrow boots in some cases.)

It is our first time to ride a tractor, and we could feel the nature of Hokkaido.
