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!
Last but not least is Daisetsuzan National Park.
Mt. Asahi, the highest mountain in Hokkaido.
The other side of Mt. Asahi.
Trying to see the Daisetsuzan mountain range and the little lakes below through the clouds.
And this is what I saw at the top of Mt. Asahi.
Mamiya-dake, as seen from the top of Mt. Asahi.
Inside the crater of Mamiya-dake.
This is a giant basin in the middle of Hokkaido’s highest mountains.
There are lots of alpine flowers up here, such as these komakusa flowers (thus named because they are supposed to have a face like a pony).
Another view of the great basin.
An finally, at Kobako (within Sounkyo Gorge) we see the Ginga waterfall on the left, and the Ryusei waterfall on the right.
