Akan Lake, Kushiro

(3.8/5 based on 420+ 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.

  • There are beautiful lakes in collapsed caldera's. There are at least two active volcanoes. There are countless hot springs. Unfortunately it is often cold, foggy and there is often a hard wind

  • Fishing on the ice you've seen on TV that I want to try, I tried to visit. From Kushiro Ekimae bus jolted bus for about two hours, finally arrived. The local snow was falling, but a large turnout. Knowing the rants I caught in the tent pay rod and bait, 1500 Yen at the reception desk is open, but about an hour and only one catch. 釣renakute is able to Tempura smelt is caught on the way back, but also offers Tempura smelt in the service.

  • I loved my stay of 2 days on the side of Lake Akan. It's rejuvenating, relaxing! We had a room overlooking the Lake in addition to the hit we took advantage of the night show offers the boat (illuminated green with passengers who throw light green balls in the water). We have been we wandered along the Lake and it's nice (despite the fact that we came at the same time that the got a pretty storm).
