At the beginning of the touring season, the contrast of white snow and dark green of spruce was so impressive in Hokkaido.
Lake Kussharo could be seen from the lookout on top of the hill but this is the entrance of the trail to the peak of Mt. Mokoto. This is "Highland Koshimizu Camping Site."
Our next target to conquer the peak, Mt. Shari(dake) still could be seen even from the plain. I hope I will be able to take enough leaves to do that next year.
There was a small shrine on top of the hill. The gate was colored with pink, the same color as moss phlox flowers, my wife's favorite color.
Mt. Shari(dake) could be seen away from the hillside of the park. The peak was still covered with white snow on that day.
This park had been run by Higashimokoto Village that merged with Memanbetsu Town. The merged municipalities was named Ozora Town.
