Panoramic View of Lake Kussharo from Bihoro Pass

I stopped by the observatory / road station at Bihoro Pass, known for its panoramic view of Lake Kussharo. Lucked with clear weather, the view from the observatory also extends to Iozan, the Wakoto Peninsula and the Shiretoko Mountain Range.

Playground of the Gods – Daisetsuzan Part 3: Ginsendai & Akadake

Final part of my Daisetsuzan hike – managed to reach the summit of Akadake (2,078m) on the 3rd day albeit taking a longer time than most people. The fall colors here in Ginsendai and on the trail towards Akadake were probably the brightest among the three hikes.
