I have to say the places we visited on the fifth day was more picturesque.  


Our rest stop towards Lake Toya, which was our first destination. 


Lake Toya - This place is too beautiful for words! 








Next, we visited Mt Showa, an active volcano. Also known as "Showa New Mountain", it rose from a flat wheat field to its current height of 290 meters after a series of earthquake between 1943 and 1945. 






Our last destination was Jigokudani or "Hell's Valley", which displays hot steam vents, sulfurous streams and other volcanic activity. 




This place reeked of sulphur. 


Boiling hot.
