Akan Lake, Kushiro
(3.8/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Formed by volcanic activities thousands of years ago, Akan Lake plays home to an unusual species of native algae that resemble large green spheres. Part of a national park, the lake draws plenty of visitors thanks to the waterside spa facilities at the nearby resort town of Akankohan. Hike around the lake on the network of walking trails to find several natural oddities, including bubbling mud pools. Alternatively, you can hop aboard a local boat tour to see the lake and the surrounding area from a different perspective. Arrange your visit to Akan Lake and discover more family-friendly attractions in Kushiro using our Kushiro travel itinerary planner.

  • 中午離開酒店前, 到阿寒湖畔行一行, 湖水配上天空的白雲, 再加上地上的雪, 簡直是美景, 又優美, 很舒服, 超正. 
  • This time wasn't marimo tourism, natural marimo actually has like sailed at the memory.

  • 不知是不是前一天剛下完雨, 早上雲霧剛散一刻靚到好似仙景一樣. 附近可坐船出去到中間的小島, 本人覺得清晨和黃昏那班船最值得去, 因湖的日落同早上雲霧真係令人印像深刻.
