Goshikinuma Lake, Kitashiobara-mura

(380 reviews on the web)
Water Body Nature / Park
Take a walk around Goshikinuma Lake, a set of five strikingly colored lakes. The lakes have existed since 1887, when a nearby volcano erupted and sent a mass of earth and rubble down into what was then a river, creating separate bodies of water. Minerals in the earth have made the water of each a different shade of blue, while plants and algae in the depths have a red tinge, creating a captivating scene of vivid colors. Hike between the five main lakes to snap photos capturing each one's individual look. Our Kitashiobara-mura holiday planner makes visiting Goshikinuma Lake and other Kitashiobara-mura attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
