Lake Toya & Showashinzan : Hokkaido

In the last few days before leaving the scenic Hokkaido region in northern Japan I took a few quick day trips around Hokkaido to see the beauty of this island. One of those were to Lake Toya and the Showashinzan cable car, with gorgeous mountain-lake scenery and some breathtaking views overlooking the lake, the coast and nearby volcano mountains from high above.
