Sounkyo in Autumn
Our stage this time is Sounkyo. It is located in the Taisetsu Mountain Range, almost in the center of Hokkaido Prefecture. It is a ravine with cliffs as high as 200 meters, created by volcanic activities that occurred 30,000 years ago. In autumn, the area is beautifully colored with autumn leaves. The program host rides a bicycle and encounters the beautiful scenery that the ravine offers. Further, he climbs Mt. Kurodake, which is over 1,900 meters above sea level, to fully enjoy its scenery as autumn deepens. Later, we show you some footage of wildlife inhabiting this area, filmed during fall and winter.
