In mid-September, it became season for the trees in Hokkaido to begin to turn from green to yellow and red.
This time, I'd like to introduce the area around the foot of Asahikawa
where the staff of Asahikawa Airport Sales Office took pictures.
It takes less than an hour by car from Asahikawa Airport to reach the Daisetsuzan Asahidake Ropeway platform.
"Rainbow Fountain" on the way to the ropeway.
In the upper part of Chubetsu Dam in Higashigawa-cho,
there is a fountain where groundwater naturally spouts out of Fukurou Pond.
The promenade was renovated in 2019.
The height of the water reaches 15m,
the sun's rays are reflected by the water droplets that fall in the form of mist,
and a rainbow appears.
The appearance of a rainbow depends on the weather conditions such as the angle of sunlight and the wind depending on the season,
so if you could see the rainbow, you are so lucky!
"Daisetsu Asahidake Gensui Park" is just a short drive from the rainbow fountain.
The parking lot and mineral springs are neatly maintained, so you can take the spring water of Mt. Asahidake.
There are countless people who bring their own water bottles and come to draw water like this.
Even those who come with such a large amount of PET bottles.
Higashikawa-cho is one of the few villages in Japan that does not have a water supply,
and the water from this Daisetsu Asahidake is used as water for daily life.
After driving a little further, you could arrive at the platform of the Daisetsuzan Asahidake Ropeway!
At the area near the top of the mountain, it is said that it is already the season of autumn leaves.
It was a little early for the autumn leaves because it is around the foot of the mountain this time,
but top of Asahidake is the earliest to see the autumn leaves in Japan.
It will soon be able to enjoy the autumn leaves even around this foot of the mountain.
Please enjoy the autumn leaves with a car of World Net Rent-A-Car.
