Next day we drove Northwest from the lake in the previous shot to the Daisetsuzan Mountain range that sits in the middle of the island.
Took a cable car, then a 2-person chair (pictured here) about 3/4 of the way up Kurodake Mtn. (黒岳) for a little bit of hiking and picture taking. Was a beautiful day with great views.
