Trek Through the “Moss Labyrinth” in Shikotsu-Toya National Park – HOKKAIDO LOVE!

Located in Shikotsu-Toya National Park, the “moss labyrinth” is a gorge formed by erosion from the lava and volcanic ash, which flowed out after an eruption from still-active Mt. Tarumae hundreds of years ago. The complex terrain has evolved over many years, forming a winding path with walls as high as 10 meters in some places. The area is said to flow with spiritual energy, and the contrast between the light from above and the moss covering the surrounding walls gives the space a beautiful, mystical atmosphere. Enjoy a summer morning or afternoon tour wandering through this enchanting, dream-like trail.
