Lake Ikeda, Ibusuki

(1.3/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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. Take a look at our Ibusuki tour planner to schedule your visit to Lake Ikeda and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • 池田湖,這裡盛傳曾經有水怪出沒而聞名,同時是春季賞油菜花田的好地方! 水怪就見唔到,但見到色彩繽紛..美美的花卉~ 隨著季節改變,會有不同的花田~ 令人不自禁地自拍..自拍...XD 
  • The area is very nice and the flowers are very beautiful. Shame that there isn't a footpath that allows us to walk around the lake. The restaurant next to the lake serves very good food! 
  • There were many migratory birds. Shops also had had no tourism during the low season. There is also the character of Issy
