The mountain pass located between Kamishihoro and Sounkyo Onsen is known for being the road with the highest point in Hokkaido. The road winds beautifully amid a sea of trees. The rest area at the summit of the pass includes an observatory so that you can look down upon the seasonal beauty of the surrounding area. While exploring, why not stop for a bite at the Mikuni Pass Cafe? With stunning vistas and house-roasted pour-over coffee, you will not regret taking a break here! The ocean of green turns to fiery reds and yellows in the Fall, making it the best time of year to visit. Make sure to stop by before mid-November when the pass closes for the Winter!
