The waters of Otatomari Marsh, nestled by the coast of the northern Rishiri island, are vibrantly blue and reflective as a looking glass. The walkway leading to the lake is equally picturesque, leading through towering primeval forests and under the watchful gaze of toothy peaks. The view from this path, with the eponymous Mt. Rishiri rising up above the marsh, inspired the packaging of Hokkaido’s famous souvenir, shiroi koibito (buttery white chocolate biscuits). What better place to get a commemorative photo of your trip to Hokkaido?
