Photo Tour of Japan | Oobako

Feb 10 | Evan | No Comments |

Oobako is the beginning of the gorge that makes way for Sounkyo Onsen and the Sounkyo Gorge.   Oobako is about 10 minutes from the Sounkyo Onsen area and has parking directly next to it.  You probably won’t need a whole lot of time here, as the area is quite small, but certainly worth taking a few minutes to stop by and take a look around.  There is a slightly elevated platform over looking the river but if you don’t mind hoping a small rail you can get down to the rocks and the river.   Like most places in Hokkaido and certainly like the Daisetsuzan National Park and surrounding areas, there could be bears or other wild animals.

More from this photo tour of Japan is coming soon!  Here is the list of the places we visited and photographed in Japan.
