Lake Kussharo is pretty and relatively untouristed. The white swan on the lake was not seen at all, because it was integrated with the snow. Until come to shore of lake, the swan appeared in droves.

There is such a legend in Lake Mashū. If a couple sees theLake Mashū under the clear sky, then the wedding period will be postponed. If you can't see the lake, then love will last for a long time. It was not too foggy when we visited at this viewpoint, good sign!

Seeing the Swan Chu Lulu Lake on the shore of the Kussharo Lake is the largest lake in the Akanmo Week National Park. There are several hot springs on the southeast side that can be bathed. In winter, the lake will freeze, but because there are hot springs in the ground, some of the high-heated ice melts, and four to five hundred swans inhabit each year. First come to the sand soup. There is a hot spring pouring out of the sand at the lakeside. If you are interested, you can dig a pool to make an open-air hot spring. Although the weather was good, the wind blew very cold, and almost thought that the swan would not be able to skip this place, and it was hiding on the other side. The nearby store can buy salt-free popcorn to feed the swan. Then go to Gome Hot Springs. This open-air hot spring facing the Kussha Lake has been cleaned regularly by locals. The dressing room is divided into men and women. The pool is one, with a rock partition in the middle. You can wear a towel or bathrobe to soak. Looking at the scenery of the distant mountains is very beautiful, the swan is swimming around, but the winter is too cold, quickly pat the swan, wrap the clothes on the body, no courage to make hot springs.

To ask what color is the water in Mo Zhou Lake, the answers are different in different seasons and different angles, and it may not be seen at all! Some official websites call it "the last sanctuary on the ground", although exaggerated, it also highlights its mystery. This volcanic lake is 351 meters above sea level, the deepest part is 211.4 meters, and the area is larger than the Akan Lake. Surrounded by cliffs of three or four hundred meters, it is said to be the most transparent lake in the world because it does not flow in and out without impurities. There is often fog on the lake, especially in June and July (see Figure 9). There is an old song called "Mo Zhou Lake in the fog", and there are several legends about the fog of Mo Zhou Lake. If a couple can't see the lake because of the fog, it will last for a long time. If the unmarried person sees the lake without fog, What will delay the wedding period, may be to comfort the visitors who can not see the scenery here.

Hokkaido in winter is always a plan to keep up with the changes. Original plan: JR Kushiro to Chuanyu Hot Springs for sightseeing bus. Actual: Because of the blizzard, all the cars stopped. JR stopped at the Mozhan Station in advance. We were trapped at the Mo Zhou Station. The staff said that all the buses to Lake Mashu in the afternoon were gone. There is no taxi in this place. You can only wait for the Meiliu and Line bus to Chuantang Hot Spring Station in the afternoon. Today's itinerary is a bubble. All the attractions along the Mo Zhou Lake and Chuan Tang Hot Springs are closed. We went to a place, 2 km from Chuantang Hot Spring Station and a round trip to Sulphur Mountain. Kawagawa Onsen Station is a very small unmanned station. There is no staff in the small station. There is no heating. There is only one small restaurant. There is a timetable in the restaurant. Fortunately, there is a hot spring near the station. The pool, finally, drove the cold of the body. Although the small station is small, there is no train passing after the station is closed, so you can take pictures as much as you can. After dark, the station was getting colder and colder, and the temperature of the phone showed 12 degrees below zero.

The volcanoes of the Sulphur Mountain are shrouded in sulphur throughout the year, and from a long distance you can smell the sulphur. There are many large and small jet holes from the foothills of the Sulphur Mountain to the top of the mountain. The sulphur-rich water vapor is continuously sprayed with strong momentum, and the nearby area is covered with a strong sulfur smell. The picture shows that the surrounding stones have been smoked when viewing its sulfur vents from close range. Come to the sulfur mountain must eat boiled eggs, I heard that one can live a hundred years old, I ate a few in one breath! Standard is egg, milk, milk

Lake Mashu is located in a lake in the Kawasaki-cho, Kawakami-gun, in the eastern part of Hokkaido, Japan. It is a volcanic lake and is the most transparent lake in Japan. It was listed as a Hokkaido heritage in 2001. When I went, it was cold, although the cold wind blew my whole person frozen, but it was amazing when I saw the quiet and sacred Lake Mashu. It is said that there is not much time when Lake Mu Zhou can see the whole picture all year round. If you are lucky enough to see the Lake of the Week at the sunny day, this is very lucky~

In the Akan National Park in winter, the Lake of Kussha Lake is frozen, but because of the hot spring water flowing from the lake, the sand pool next to the lake not only does not freeze, but also attracts many white swans from Siberia to spend the winter here. Walk by the lake, in the distance is the snow-capped mountains and the vast lake. Beside the beautiful swans, the fairyland is just like this. The place where you can enjoy the swan has the sand soup mentioned before, and there is another wonderful place where you can watch the swan while dancing in the open air. The Gudan Hot Spring Bath, hidden in the southeast corner of Kussha Lake, is such a place. It is extremely secretive. The outer road is a few locals-run inns and restaurants. It takes dozens of walks to walk to the lake to see the open-air bath built with stones on the lakeside. In the middle of the bath, a large stone separates the male and female parts. No roof, no luxurious dressing room, no shower space, wooden to create a rough dressing room and simple fence, but the perfect blend with the scenery here, pure natural without adding, really a wild taste. Look around the white snow lake, the mountains stretched, there are swan companions in the vicinity, sitting in the beautiful scenery, why should we stick to the secular taboo? This top-notch Gudan Spa is completely free. An old man will come here regularly to clean the bath to maintain the hot springs. The founder of the hot spring was originally built to reward the tourists and locals who could come here, so there was no willingness to charge.
