Goshikinuma Lake, Kitashiobara-mura

4.4
#1 of 84 in Parks in Fukushima Prefecture
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.

    I had walked upright too, so all I can go with. There also are on the boat. I think it is suitable for anyone who likes to walk the walk.

    The morning I went at around 9 pm. It was windy weather conditions are comfortable and cosy. Is often recently to explore the water, such as lakes and ponds, but here the water color. Reminded me of the waters of Boracay island in the Philippines.

    I went in July. Goshiki-NUMA is actually seen by the swamp of 3 colors of green, blue and red. Appearance of the swamp may change by the time and light. Are maintained trail in the surrounding of swamps and marshes all look around. There were a lot of people back, I visited 2:30 PM and immediately started to explore, have already finished the walk. Around a walk to all think you should at least have left around noon. Bell of bear repellent and in some places, in the wilderness of sense can be. It is recommended that when you come to the inawashiro Lake near the tourist, take a look at half a day spend to explore the Goshiki-NUMA.
