Stunning Landscapes and Hot Springs in Kawayu Onsen – HOKKAIDO LOVE!

Akan-Mashu National Park is home to some of Hokkaido’s most mystical lakes: Lake Akan, Lake Kussharo, and Lake Mashu. Nestled in between is the unusual Kawayu Onsen hot spring area, pervaded by the potent aroma of sulfur and volcanic vapors. You can take a dip in the highly acidic water of Kawayu Onsen, which has strong antibacterial effects on the skin or cleanses only your feet in the local foot baths. The views at Akan-Mashu National Park are some of the finest sights you’ll see in the Japanese wilderness: hump-back mountains, rolling snowy plains billowing superheated steam into the air, caldera lakes, and primeval forests.
