Fifty Shades of Autumn

November 14, 2012 Leave a comment

Shades of autumn at Lake Shikotsu.


It is a Caldera lake with a maximum depth of 363 metres (1,191 ft),

the second deepest lake in Japan.

Because of its depth, the lake doesn’t freeze even when the temperature is

under minus 20 degrees C.

This is the northernmost ice-free lake in Japan.

Good season to drive around!
