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.
Sounkyo is at the foothills of Daisetsuzan on the ridge of Kamikawa-cho, Hokkaido. It was the first time I saw this address in a reasonable way. I thought it was Kamikawa-cho’s ridge-the foot of Daisetsuzan. Later I found out that the snow-capped mountain was called Yaji Daisetsuzan...and It does not refer to the highest peak in the physical sense. . . The name is good! The mountain here is mainly composed of tuff structure of clasts after volcanic eruption, which is corroded by spring water and snow water to form steep canyons. There are also many waterfalls. The entire scenic area is well-developed, complete with hotels, hot springs, and cable cars, which is a good place to go.
1. I will travel in Hokkaido for two weeks from October 16th to 30th, 2019. Every time I travel, I benefit from the strategies of many netizens, so I always write return notes very carefully, hoping to help other friends. 2. The focus of this trip to Hokkaido is Soun Gorge, which is a famous area for viewing autumn leaves in Japan. But when I came to Soun Gorge on October 27th, I found that I was late and the mountain was already bald. It seemed that it was definitely not a week or two weeks later. Later, I checked the information and found that the red leaves of Soun Gorge are self-explanatory. Start at the end of September. Therefore, if you want to come to Sounkyo, you must study it in advance. Japan Hongye Hunter has a website that also refers to the weather conditions in Japan. I use a Japanese weather information software as a reference. 3. Sounkyo belongs to the Dohoku area. You can transfer to Dohoku Bus at Asahikawa Station or Kamikawa Station from Sapporo. Please refer to the picture I posted for the bus timetable.
You must come once in your life, just for the 2-hour shift, a total of 81 stops, and the driving time is 2 hours of toss! The first cable car to the 5th station under the mountain, because it is weekdays, I am alone on the cable car, the staff is not slack at all, and the introduction is enthusiastic, like a person full of cars. . . . When I arrived at the 5th station, I had seen the snow wall piled up high, but I didn't feel how cold it was. I planned to continue the cable car to the 7th station, but the cable car is under maintenance. Looking at the instructions on how to deal with the bear infestation, I gave up in silence. You plan to climb to the top of the mountain on foot. The top floor of Kurodake Station is an observation deck, and the surrounding snow peaks are undulating and spectacular. There are souvenirs on the 2nd floor. There is also a restaurant with curry rice...
