Mt. Showashinzan (昭和新山) in the south of Lake Toya is a volcanic lava dome with 398 m in height. Red surface of the mountain catches eyes, so it is conspicuous at a distance. Speaking of the Mt. Showashinzan, an episode that a wheat field rose just overnight is famous. Actually, the Mt. Showashinzan changed to a current shape after 2 years. It was named "Showashinzan" because Mt. Showashinzan rose in 1944 (Showa period) and it has designated as a special natural treasure since 1957.
