The clouds cleared and the mist cleared, and the misty rain of Lake Mashu in Akan National Park in Hokkaido revealed its true face. Summer is the rainy season in Hokkaido. Lake Mashu is shrouded in clouds and mist most of the time, and the surface of the lake is rarely seen, so summer is not a good time to visit Lake Mashu. However, a strong wind blows and sweeps away the mist covering the lake. Standing on the first observatory, you can clearly see the whole view of Lake Mashu.
I have long known that Lake Mashu is surrounded by clouds and mist all year round. Although it was covered with dark clouds today, the visibility on the scene was so good that we could feel the complete beauty of Lake Mashu. Really lucky.
Lake Mashu is located in Teshikaga and is the most transparent volcanic lake in Japan. Similar to the Changbai Mountain Tianchi in our country, the visibility of Mazhou Lake is very low most of the time, only the vast fog can be seen, and its beauty will only appear when it is sunny. You can take the mashup bus from Mashu Station to Lake Mashu. The bus will stop at the first observation deck for 20 minutes, and then return to Mashu Station on the same route. There are only 4 buses in winter. If you miss a car, you have to wait for two or three hours. There is only one shop nearby, so remember to control the time.
It takes 25 minutes by bus from JR Mashu Station to Lake Mashu. Lake Mashu is said to be the most transparent lake in the world. But in winter it becomes a snowy field, shrouded in mist. The rock in the middle of the lake was originally a small island called Kam Yixu. It was also called the dimple of Lake Mashu. In Ainu, it means an old woman who has become a god. It’s really dreamlike. The wonderland feeling.
A beautiful wonderland on earth! The lake and the blue sky complement each other, making people linger! The Kushiro Bus Day Tour includes attractions. If there are too many people, you can also pay some money and leave a professional commemorative photo
