One of the most crystal clear lake in the world, Lake Mashu
Lake Mashu is famous with its fog. So grateful that the day we visited Lake Mashu was a sunny day, therefore we could see the whole lake clearly.
The water transparency is the best of the world! It takes approximately 15 minutes for us to stroll around the lake. We’ve also uploaded the live video during our trip to Lake Mashu!

The landscape which you can only see by having a self-drive trip
While we driving, we found the big smoke blowing out!
As we tried to approach nearer...
A hot spring was blowing out from the mountain called Mountain IOU, the smoke we found is actually coming out from the hot spring.
We can sense the smell of hardboiled eggs as we get closer to Mt. IOU.
When we got closer to Mt.IOU, we could also feel the strong heat blowing to us.
The colour of the rock is in yellow colour, and the hot spring there is boiling at approximately 100 ℃! Is really surprisingly to us, Mt.IOU was such an interesting site to visit.
Let us tell you again. We are now at Mountain IOU. Did you notice what we showing to you with our body language? It is I · O · U.
Travel to the famous lake, Kussharo Lake at Sunayu
What? The hot spring will come out from the lake sand? That’s right! Although the lake is cold, when you dig the sand the hot spring will come out from there.
Families and couples always come here to enjoy both beach activities and hot spring at the same time
By the way there is hot spring water which can be drunk. Is warm and comfort
On our way back we found a great spot to see beautiful sunset! Hence, we stopped our car to take some beautiful and stunning photos before continue our journey.
It is so charm
