Lake Ikeda, Ibusuki

1.4
#4 of 8 in Parks in Ibusuki
Visit Lake Ikeda and see if you can spot the aquatic monster "Issie," reported to dwell in the depths of this caldera. The largest on the island, the lake has a surface area of 11 sq km (4.2 sq mi), and plays home to some sizeable eels. Swim in the temperate waters, enjoy the mountain scenery, and snap pictures of the smiling statue of the lake's mythical resident. A few restaurants offer extensive menus and tanks with examples of the large eels on display. During the months of February to March, the areas surrounding the lake burst with yellow rape flowers in full bloom, creating a very picturesque view.

  • It was a big lake. Some kannagi drape the rest went into the break. Rape is good for that.

  • From the point of view of the 烏丸御池駅 sitting around 20 minutes of the bus can be reached, there is not much flow of people, mention that before the water horse has become one of the scene. But it's actually just a lake, about 15 minutes to go.

  • The lake of Ikeda is calm and welcoming the scenery, people are also calm down together. There is also a park on the side of the lake, and you can get on a game stand to see the scenery or to play a subway slide. It is convenient to have parking and toilet facilities on the weekends.

Where to stay in Ibusuki

The main resort town of the southern extreme of the peninsula, Ibusuki has a number of accommodations to cater to its guests. Because of the town's focus on its geothermal spas, the primary accommodations here include such facilities on site, including sand baths and traditional Japanese bathhouses, known as "onsen." You'll find the greatest number of choices to the east of the train station along the coast. Some more budget-friendly options exist, particularly the campsites further up the coast to the north.
