I recently traveled around Hokkaido, and wish to share the photos I took in the national parks, complete with alt-text descriptions for the visually impaired. Click on the pictures to see them at full size. Enjoy!
This is in Shiretoko National Park, which is also a World Heritage Site.
The mouth of the Iwaobetsu river.
Here is the Iwaobetsu river with Mt. Mitsumine in the background.
Can you find the waterfall in this picture?
A snow field descends in the direction of the Shiretoko Five Lakes.
Clouds come up over Mt. Mitsumine, as seen from the top of Mt. Rausu.
