What people are saying:

Very idyllic place. The most beautiful time here is the late summer and early autumn every year, and it is early in Hokkaido. It started here very early, and the temperature difference was huge and dew came out. The beautiful scenery lasts until the end of September.

    Don’t miss the cable car and chairlifts

    October is a bit of a risky time to visit as the temperature can suddenly plummet - as it did during our 2 night stay - with freezing winds and rain. As the gorge is located in the mountains, be prepa...

    Cable Cart to Mountain

    來此搭纜車到山上眺望美景. Decided to take the cable to mountain top to look over the beautiful scene. A lot of nice Mountain View to fully explore the natural scene.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Stratus Gorge is an important natural landscape in the heart of the Grand Snow Mountain National Park. There are three main highlights in the Stratus Gorge scenic spot. In winter, the water freezes, creating a unique landscape of ice waterfalls. It also boasts the famous autumn red leaf landscape and the Stratus Spring in the Spring Street comparable with Noboribetsu, Toyako and Jozankei. It is definitely worth seeing.
