昭和新山 / Mt. Showa Shinzan


Mt. Showa Shinzan (Soubetsu Town) is an active volcano which has gained recognition as a special national treasure. As a record of the entire seismic and volcanic history of the mountain since its creation in 1944 has been recorded, it’s a rare volcano. In 1944, a part of a privately-owned field rose up. Within the space of only a year, it grew and grew, bigger and bigger, and became a mountain. In 1945, the activity stopped, with the mountain at its present height of 398 meters. The color of Mt. Showa Shinzan is red-brown, because the soil of the land was heated by the heat of lava. It’s like when red bricks are fired in a kiln.
