Ginga & Ryusei Waterfalls (銀河・流星の滝)| Ice Climbing | Daisetsuzan National Park

Sounkyo is a hot spring resort nestled in the Soun Gorge (層雲峡) of the Daisetsuzan National Park (大雪山国立公園).
This national park has two famous waterfalls; Ginga Waterfall (銀河の滝)(120m), literally "Galaxy Waterfalls", which is a series of thin, silvery rivulets cascading down the mountainside, and Ryusei Waterfall (流星の滝)(90m), literally "Shooting Star Waterfalls", which is a powerful fall seemingly bursting out of solid rock.

First, we went to Ryusei waterfall. No No No!! This is Ryusei ice fall!!! Amazing, isn't it?

Next we walked along Ishikari River (石狩川) to go to the wife waterfall.

We've arrived at Ginga Waterfall. Wow! Wow! Wow!

Can you find four people on the ice fall????

They are enjoying ice climbing!!! How exciting!!

 Water seems running down below the thick ice.....

I hope I will challenge ice climbing next time!!!
(If you are interested in the twin waterfalls in different seasons, please refer to my other post→)

Such a cool attraction to see the natural beauty and good to learn about the beautiful creation of Good! I love nature; Waterfalls and national parks always attract me. After reading this blog I wish to visit The Daisetsuzan National Park after my bus tours Yellowstone. Can you suggest me about any nearer resort to stay there?
