A trip beyond time, steeped in blue.
363 meters at its deepest, mysterious Lake Shikotsu is filled breathtakingly clear water.
The color of that water is called Lake Shikotsu Blue, and has offered countless blessings to this area since ages long past.
The Kiusu Earthwork Burial Circles, Japanese northernmost and largest Jomon Culture ruins,
give proof that people have lived here peacefully for 3,000 years.
The northern Jomon people carried on the love and reverence of nature from their ancestors.
That spirit and form, and the symbolic blue of Lake Shikotsu, exist beyond time, now and into the future.
