The Shiribetsu River is filled with melting snow, and the remaining snow of Mt. Youtei. Looking upstream, we see Mt. Shiribetsu.
These two mountains are a married couple. In the Ainu language, Mt. Yotei is called Machinesiri (female mountain) and Mt. Shiribetsu is called Pinneshiri (male mountain).
