We visited here as part of our tour of Hokkaido. We went for a walk to the local museum where we discovered there are some rare crickets nearby that are only found in this part of the world and they ...
As there is only one bus a day from Akanko to Mashu (leaves Akanko at 9.20 and arrives at Mashu railway station at 10.10) I decided to stay 2 nights. I took the obligatory ferry/cruise to see the Mar...
The first time I know Lake Akan is [Suicide in Lake Akan] by Junichi Watanabe. The lake is beautiful, to be admired at different times of the day.
Punch a super dream hot spring, you can take a hot spring with the swan! The eastern traffic of Hokkaido is extremely inconvenient, but for this super beautiful hot spring that can be soaked with swan, we first take JR and then transfer to the bus, then chartered to go, but it is not a trip, Akan Lake is really beautiful!
This hot spring is called Gudan Hot Spring. It is located on the shore of Qushui Road in Hokkaido and can only be driven by car or chartered.
The spa is not big, it is open-air, and it is free of charge! This hot spring is forbidden to bare bubbles, so be sure to bring a swimsuit. There are two small houses next to the hot springs that can change clothes, divided into men and women, and there are public toilets in the parking lot not far away.
We arrived at around 9 in the morning, and there was no one at all. There will be a group of swans playing outside the hot springs, and its a dream to take pictures.
Before 10 o'clock in the morning and one hour before sunset, it is better to go to the light.
Swimwear, towels (all of which must be provided)
Sit JR to Kushiro, on the left side of the station No. 15 and other buses, there are not many flights, to be advanced Buy tickets at the station and go to the hotel on Lake Akan, 2,700 yen per person. We booked a chartered one-day tour online, and the return route was from Akan-Lake Road. In the peak season, the chartered car was 3,800 RMB. The result was a small tourist car (a dozen small buses).
The classic old work "Happiness Yellow Handkerchief", some of the scenes in the movie were selected in Akan Lake. At that time, there was only a lonely hotel on the shore of Lake Akan, and the surrounding area was ridiculous.
Who would have thought that after decades, because Feng Xiaogang, the Chinese director, made the town famous, perhaps half of them knew Hokkaido. Today, resort-style spa hotels are located on the lakeside, and Lake Akan is also a popular place.
Ahan Town is a very small town, famous for its Akan Lake. The whole town is a Y-shaped street, adding up to a total length of 100 meters.
A cold town in the evening has a charm, fresh air, quiet streets, making us feel comfortable all year round in a smoggy, suffocating city. Although the town is relatively remote, the street lights are a little dim, there are almost no people on the street, and occasionally they drive through a car, but our foreigners are not nervous at all on strange roads. As we walked and walked, the Japanese-style hotels here mostly featured first-class hot spring baths, and there were few local specialties in the shops.
