Don't adjust your color settings. The Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park really is this colorful. The varying hues in this hot spring come from all of the different organisms living in it. No wonder Yellowstone became the first national park way back in 1872, and why we definitely include it as one of THE MOST colorful spots in the US.

'To look at this image you would probably think it was taken in the American Midwest, and not #Japan at all. The impressive mountain in the backdrop is actually an active volcano, Mount Oakan. What I love about this image is the way the house mimics the giant volcano towering behind, like a giant shadow.' – @pearsonphotography -- Tap our link in bio for more information on traveling to #Hokkaido!

'The Northern Japanese island of #Hokkaido is well known for the ‘Tancho' or Japanese Crane. These magnificent creatures can be found just a short drive from #Kushiro at a winter feeding ground.
