Sounkyo Onsen層雲峡温泉

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

A hot spring district located in a ravine consisting of some 24 kilometers of continuous sheer cliffs at the foot of Mt. Kurodake. The area boasts over 60 source springs and an accordingly abundant flow of piping hot water. One of Hokkaido's top destinations for picturesque scenery, this hot spring village also serves as a base for sightseeing in Daisetsuzan National Park. There are many famous and beautiful waterfalls in the area such as Ryusei Falls; a stream in the area, fed by a hot spring, is lined with Japanese maples and many other deciduous trees, and in fall the entire area is decorated with gorgeous autumn foliage. The area's mildly alkaline chloride springs and sulfate springs are gentle on the skin and accordingly are favored by men and women of all ages.

          Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
