Akan Lake, Kushiro

Categories: Bodies of Water, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
3.8/5 based on 380+ 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.

  • 今日自駕拜訪傳說中的阿寒湖 對於溫泉商店街的興致缺缺 在午餐後至湖岸步道散步 才真正體會到阿寒湖的清澈與寧靜 
  • I went in the winter. As the Lake is inhabited by marimo famous, spreads in front of the hot spring town. Surrounded by the mountains surrounding, enjoy scenic landscapes. Did not, until the ice was covered with ice is a little when visited by the way is... like to see AKAN Lake ice sometime.

  • "Marimo" Ainu race Museum and famous hot springs, is too famous, have a stereotyped impression of tourism. Tourist hotels and Inns and crowded souvenir shops too much too. In large hotels have large corporate clients from Asia and dominated, Japan family who has a lake tour might. We were one of them.
