Akan Lake, Kushiro

3.8
#1 of 49 in Things to do in Kushiro
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.

    It is a tourist destination represents the Kushiro region. From Kushiro city in the uncultivated field and forest roads more than 50 km, but here is the Kushiro. Bus, but one flight Kushiro from morning because it became kinda inconvenient.

Where to stay in Kushiro

When it comes to international tourism, Kushiro represents more of a transit point than a destination, with people passing through and using it for its good onward connection options. For those that do spend the night here, Kushiro has a welcome set of accommodations, usually business class hotels with a pool, a restaurant, and simple rooms. Some particularly budget-friendly hotels sit as close as possible to the main train station, while the train station district as a whole contains the vast majority of what's available here.
