Torrents of water in Ashibetsu City !
The Three Steps Waterfall called "Sandan-no-Taki" in Japanese in Ashibetsu City is along the Route 425 from Mikasa City to Ashibetsu City.
After the saturation rain came down in torrents, Ashibetsu river became like a bunch of serpents
with white splash in the mountain. This lookout for the water fall was not off-limits when I dropped by on my way of business jaunt to Ashibetsu City.
The river of brown swamped to the lookout after I left there.
Every weekend, many tourists drop by this area but only few groups were watching the torrent on September 12(Wed.).
Even the white-rive-rafting crazy would shun this flow.
Thanks to the high air-pressure system on Pacific Ocean, no typhoon hit Hokkaido Island so far but the humid air and low atmospheric pressure systems like tropical depressions are romping
Have a great weekend!
