Breaking the ice

The Yomiuri Shimbun

The Yomiuri ShimbunA pleasure boat that also serves as an icebreaker opens up a route on Lake Akan — famous for its marimo green algae — in Kushiro, Hokkaido, on Monday. Ahead of the Golden Week holidays, the 188-ton Mashu Maru traveled on the lake, making grinding noises as it broke the ice, which was at maximum about 40 centimeters thick. A drift-ice sightseeing cruise will start Friday.
