Mount Usu

  • Mountain View

Mt.Usu is an active volcano which erupts once in several decades .

Mt.Showa-shinzan is a mountain which is formed at the foot of Mt.Usu, so we may say it a part of Mt Usu.

Tourists may reach the top of the mountain by ropeway from the station with parking lots

and have a panoramic view of Lake Toya and the mountain from the observatory tower.

It takes ten minutes to walk from the mountain-top station to the Entrance Ginnuma crater,

the splendid site of the eruption of the volcano can be seen from the view platform.

It is the highlight of the Lake Toya.

Access and Getting Around

Cars can be parked at the parking lot of Mt.Showa-shinzan.

The bus stop is also here.
