Red Bridge through Primeval Forest with Fall Foliage Is Picture-perfect -Mikuni Pass in Kamishihoro-

October 23rd, 2017

Mikuni Pass (三国峠) is the highest pass at 1139 m above sea level in Hokkaido in Kamishihoro located in the north part of Obihiro, and is on National Route 273 (Nukabira National Route (糠平国道)) that connects Kamikawa (上川) and Tokachi (十勝) and penetrates Daisetsuzan National Park (大雪山国立公園) in a north-south direction. There is not a house around the Mikuni Pass, a sea of trees such as Sakhalin Fir (トドマツ) and Yezo Spruce (エゾマツ) spreads over. Horoka Onsen (幌加温泉) and Nukabira Onsen (糠平温泉) are a little far away. The sea of the trees is famous for fall foliage, too. The best time to see is from mid September to early October.

There is Mikuni-toge Observation Deck (三国峠展望台) in front of Mikuni Tunnel (三国トンネル). Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge. Mikuni Cafe (三国Cafe), a drinking fountain, a restroom and the parking lot are provided on the site. the Mikuni Cafe serves meals from late April to late October, and business hour is from 08:00 to 17:30. Visitors can enjoy a primeval forest with fall foliage, but Matsumi-ohashi Bridge (松見大橋) with about 30 m in heigh and about 330 m in total length through the primeval forest from Ryokushin Bridge (緑深橋) is most popular. A lot of tourists come to take a photo of a combination of curved red bridge and the fall foliage. Mountain range and the sea of the trees with the fall foliage from the Ryokushin Bridge is good, too. The visitors must park their cars on the shoulder of the road because there is not a parking lot. The road has lots of traffic, so Watch out for cars!
