SpotAmur River

The Amur River, which is a large river 4,300 km long in eastern Siberia, far north of Hokkaido, pours a lot of fresh water into the sea. As it is lighter than ocean water, fresh water stays above the salt water and starts to freeze at 1.7 degrees below zero. A thick ice slush is created, which changes into round ice floes, which in turn collide with each other and change shape into "pancake" ice. Driven by wind and riding on tides, they change into drift ice and come to eastern Hokkaido after a 1,000-km journey.
