“Young and short mountain”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Able to see clearly from car park of Mount Usu base station as it is next to it. Also good view from Lake Toya viewing platform at Mount Usu Ropeway Summit Station. It is a new mountain formed as a result of 2 years volcanic activity following an earthquake in December 1943.

“Do not miss”
Reviewed 7 February 2014

This is what I long for when I visited Toya. The view, the crated at Mount Usu, the bears, simply a great time full of emotions with the bears, the wind, the view of the pacific ocean..

“Red stone volcano”
Reviewed 15 February 2013

CYC(2013. 2)+G
There was the only type of land in the world. So it was very surprising in view of geologist, but in our view, that was not that surprising. The landscape was beautiful, but there were nothing to see except the mountain.

“Steaming Hot”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

On our way to see the Bear Farm, we passed by Mt. Showa, which is the young volcano, compared to Mt. Usu, also an active volcano. We came quite close to the volcano. Mt. Showa was small but it was steaming hot, reddish in color and smoke bellowing out of its peak.

Nearby, you can take the ropeway up to Mt. Usu and also visit the Bear Farm.
