Lake Nukabira ice bubbles
Magical naturally created scenes of bubbles in ice on the freezing surface of Lake Nukabira are fascinating visitors to the lake in the town of Kamishihoro in eastern Hokkaido, where mid-winter temperatures continue.
Ice bubbles are a phenomenon caused by methane gas given off by bacteria in the lake, which forms bubbles that then become trapped in the freezing ice. A company employee from Asahikawa who visited the lake on January 6 to take photos said, “It’s really beautiful and well worth photographing,” as he pressed the shutter button repeatedly.
Pond-smelt fishing also began at Lake Nukabira on the 4th, and numerous visitors could also be seen enjoying the long-awaited fishing season.
