Goshikinuma Lake, Kitashiobara-mura

(4.4/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Yaginuma, aonuma, Blue Lake around. Daily tour in treading that so have to wear snowshoes that otherwise go. Color of much interest.

  • Stroll I had leaves little time. Weather was good, location while enjoying a variety of colors. Soothing sounds of flowing water. Paving of the nukarumimasu after the rain, but solidly built than some bumpy like this road. Is moderately stimulated even the soles of the feet, while enjoying beautiful scenery and fresh air, quite a distance away, night's sleep w times looking at color of the swamp is mysterious. But on sunny days is recommended.

  • With snowshoes and explore snow Goshiki-NUMA, walked. Is because tours are also relatively snow hardens and the walking boots, etc. I think diving shoes even if the trail is about 15 cm. Just snowshoeing is easy to walk to. ABI bishamon-NUMA side can't use toilets. Also can use the toilet Yaginuma side product Center was closed in buildings to take a break, so the trip from Yaginuma side. Finding the dents in the snow and scenery, and increases the amount of snows in the middle is the return from the ABI bishamon-NUMA snowshoe trail went cold, but not back. Color of the streamflow's dark period and inconsistent, and I also like to feel monotonous color sense is under the snow and surprising colors looked bright. Enjoy the quiet Goshiki-NUMA, so people do not walk too much.
