Photo Tour of Japan | Sounkyo Onsen

Feb 09 | Evan | No Comments |

Sounkyo Onsen is the central part of Hokkaido and northern part of Daisetsuzan National Park.  As we continued to tour around Hokkaido, we stayed in Sounkyo for 2 nights.  The Sounkyo area is basically inside the Sounkyo Gorge, which starts with the entrance with Oobako.  There are a few waterfalls, nice hikes, lake, small but pleasant town center, photo museum, ski slopes and ropeway up to Mount Kurodake.  If you are considering going, here is the Tourism Association of Sounkyo website.

For this post, I am displaying a gallery of just one part of the gorge area.  The Sounkyo Gorge goes on for quite a bit and if we had more time, we would have wanted to explore the gorge a little more for other photographic opportunities.  We saw a few from the bus on the way out, but there really aren’t too many places for a bus to park along the road!

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