Leaving for Hokkaido to enjoy the earliest autumn in Japan by ferry ‼️

Oari Ferry Terminal

In the ferry to Hokkaido. Pleasant journey.Take a big bath and stay at the comfortable room.

Day1 in Hokkaido
from Tomakomai to Shikaribetsu lake via Nisho Toge pass.
After the drizzling, the beautiful rainbow appeared. Riding the mountain road all the way to Shikaribetsu lake. I could see the red and yellow colored leaves everywhere. The earliest autumn in Japan has already come here.

Day2 in Hokkaido
Shikaribetsu to Asahikawa via Sounkyo.
On the way to Sounkyo valley, I passed the Mikuni Toge Pass.It is the highest altitude national road in Hokkaido. The splendid Jukai (Forest Sea) stretches to the horizon, and is one of Hokkaido’s best-known landscapes. Before I reached the Mikuni Toge Pass,it’s raining suddenly. But at the top of the pass, the sun came out. I could see the panoramic view from there.

It’s the perfect season to see autumn leaves in Sounkyo area. Falls and autumn leaves are beautiful at Ryusei and Ginga fall. The view of snow capped Daisetsuzan mountain and colorful red and yellow mountains are fantastic. Here is the earliest autumn leaves area in Japan.
