The Daisetsuzan volcanic cluster is a mountain range up to 2,000 meters high in the center of Hokkaido. From mid-September, the mountain scenery in Daisetsuzan began to change its clothes. The typical colors of autumn begin to appear at the highest peaks, then gradually spread down the slopes and dye the valley in red in October.

If you are familiar with walking among the trees or sitting under the maple canopy to see the red leaves, coming to Sounkyo Gorge, visitors will experience the feeling of climbing a mountain while watching the brilliant autumn on both sides of the road. Photo: Japan-magazine

Because the yellow leaves and red leaves in Daisetsuzan appear from the beginning of September, the most brilliant and suitable time to see the full beauty of autumn here is the first half of October.
