What people are saying:

Come to Hokkaido in winter to see snow, lakes, and clouds. Lake Mashu is a crater lake, very beautiful and very cold, especially when it is windy~ The sky is changeable, the blue sky for a while, the gray day for a while, the Mashu Lake under the blue sky is very beautiful, the wind blowing on the lake is rippling, I don't know if a monster will appear in the next second, a very mysterious lake~

    Do not go if it is raining

    Dense fog

    I am sure this place is wonderful, but we missed the lake due to dense fog. I advise you to check the forcast before and avoid it in dense fog situations. Not only you will see nothing, but the road c...
