In the calm and tranquil world of ice and snow, the Sulphur Mountain is brisk and cheerful. Above the white snow, the sulphur volcanic vent springs surging, the clouds are steaming, and the snow is boiling and happy! Xiangshan was steaming hot, and turned around to an endless tranquil world. All the mess is dissolved in the snow, and as far as the eye can see, there are only pure white snow shadows and twinkling sunlight.
~The water and sky are the same blue color-sand soup (Kussharo Lake)~ Lake Kussharo covers an area of 80 square kilometers and has a water depth of 118 meters. It is the largest crater lake in Japan. When you reach the lake, the sky is clear, the sky is bright, the sky is blue and the ice is crystal clear, if it comes out, it looks like a jade pond on earth. Under the ice and snow, hot springs gushing from the bottom of the lake, melting a pool of clear water, the water is smoky, and swans flying from far away Siberia swim in the meantime, and feel like being in a fairyland.
The car will stay in the sand soup for 15 minutes for you to play. Today may be because the temperature is relatively high and the lake is not frozen. But because there is an underground hot spring near the sand bath, the swans like to stay near the sand bath. There is also a foot bath in the sand bath, but we did not experience it in a hurry. This side is still very beautiful, the Swan Gate is also very cute, but the play time is too short.
Buying a 2-day bus pass at JR Mashu Station can circle the scenic spots around Lake Mashu and Lake Kussharo. The bus will stay at Sunayu Station for 25 minutes, and the opposite side is the Kussharo Lake. There are many white swans lying lazily on the shore, some are cruising, and more are dozing, besides there are water birds that look like mandarin ducks, and the distant mountains are like Dais, forming a winter ink painting.
