Moss Canyon (Koke-no-Domon)

Moss Canyon (Koke-no-Domon)

InformationInformation

Koke-no-Domon is one of the popular sightseeing spots around Lake Shikotsu-ko. The 10 meters high, 420 meters long canyon was formed by the lava erupted from Mt. Tarumae and eroded over tens of thousands years. The volcanic rocks on both sides of the canyon are now covered with 30 kinds of moss. The beautiful canyon, which looks as if covered with a green velvet, is cold even in the middle of summer.
