①Lake Toya : the 3rd largest caldera lake in the country, accompanied with Mt. Usu(active volcano) and Showa Shinzan(volcanic lava dome), it is a major tourist destination in this region. The Usuzan ropeway brings you up to the top of Mt. Usu where you can get a magnificent view of Lake Toya, Showa Shinzan and even Mt. Yotei(nicknamed "Ezo Fuji" since it resembles Mt. Fuji) far beyond. ② Muroran : located between Volcano Bay and the Pacific ocean, it has developed as the important part of land and sea routes. Blessed with a great natural harbor, this seaside city has many places that you can find interesting.
