Lake Shirakaba, Chino

#2 of 9 in Nature in Chino
High up in the Japanese hills sits Lake Shirakaba, an artificial lake found on a plateau between two mountains at 1,416 m (4,646 ft) above sea level. Take time to unwind and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere and green forests that fill your view as you take a leisurely stroll or as you sit on one of the many benches along the water's edge. You can hire pedal boats and navigate across the water. If you look towards the middle of the lake, notice a small fountain made of rocks stacked upon each other. Using our custom trip planner, Chino attractions like Lake Shirakaba can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Is feeling every time I go, but tourists is decreasing. I wonder if people are bad except for summer. Sunny had a 5 month period, Kuruma-Yama Mt. 360-degree panorama is at the Summit of Mt. Fuji, nice appearance, and around the mountains on snow landscape very impressed. Recommended car t mountain top once to go to kirigamine and Lake Shirakaba. Can easily be reached by aerial tramway.

  • But September was the autumn leaves had begun. A bright yellow was particularly impressive. You can relax around the Lake, hotel and restaurant nice, even without staying. Locals, so there are a lot of parking lot to park your car.

  • Friends and stopped by the bike touring, but Birch Lake heart washed by the clear views of the picture. Photo 24 bikes. General vehicle blocking the road for a while to get from the parking lot, had hung a little junk. Please forgive me anyway.

  • Try the pedal boat during summertime
  • N1 Area
  • It is a little lonely, opposite a nice. Is the facility clean and in good condition, there is no pier as well as a dangerous place. Repair maintenance done, so children's peace of mind. According to the example shine swan boat on the calm surface of the Lake. Properly and enjoy the beautiful scenery while you can enjoy without feeling like dying in strong winds in the Lake Nojiri. Themselves Shirakaba Lake and birch tree grows well around the Lake, so you may wonder. Can give buy wheat gluten pastry inhabited by carp, but many will feel bad, too.

  • Lake Shirakaba is surrounded by beautiful Birch. Had a visit at the end of September, so quiet. I'd imagine a summer crowded with family, offered in the autumn season, people gather to the ski slopes and winter... Buy liquor and wine in a souvenir shop in the closed state. This is a wonderful scenery.

Where to stay in Chino

Chino itself possesses a few accommodations, most of them unfussy hotels with onsite communal bathhouses (using geothermal waters, a real draw of the area), located close to the main train station. Many opt instead to stay at Suwa to the north, where lakeside lodgings are a little more upmarket and well maintained. Alternatively, visitors to Chino choose to stay to the east of the main city center, where hot spring resorts sit in secluded, scenic locations in the highland areas.
