Lake Ikeda, Ibusuki

2.6
#4 of 9 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.

  •  To Lake Ikeda has visited several times so far, but any early spring flowers bloom, and, now, as G-W during the first visit.  Also, thanks to good weather to enjoy fully the Lake Ikeda in the early summer, just went out to rely on information in advance, blossoming poppies Lake this time of year, that is, overlapping and poppies bloom.  It is also also Lake Ikeda is so crowded during the holidays, the crowded parking lot and trail, but for a long time.  If no flower will bloom on a Lake like this, and I want to go all the way to someone's posting there as lakeside time, unfortunately without anything other than the Lake, and may become just a transit point.    I, as a person who knows the hustle and bustle of the bygone days of 50, 60s early Showa period faced Issy boom that may inhabit the Lake Ikeda Ikeda Lake, the lonely feeling
