Ice Bubbles: Lake Nukabira’s Ethereal Wintery Sight – HOKKAIDO LOVE!

When methane gas emitted from the bottom of Lake Nukabira freezes during the winter, the resulting phenomenon is one of strange etheric beauty known as ice bubbles. When visiting, be sure to bring your camera as the sheer mass of bubbles frozen under the surface of the lake offers a perfect opportunity to take strange and unique photos. Make sure to visit during mid-Winter as the bubbles themselves are only visible during the coldest period of the season when the lake is frozen solid. Otherwise, a blanket of snow will obscure your view. Keep safe while walking across the surface of this frozen lake by hiring a guide who can also show you the best picture-taking spots!
