Akan Lake, Kushiro

4.0
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. For Akan Lake and beyond, use our Kushiro trip maker app to get the most from your Kushiro vacation.

  • diverse ecological system surrounding the pure peaceful lake. It makes a day or many days strolling around Akan lake and its nearby mountains
  • Enjoy the atmosphere of the late Showa town. Wiped the housekeeper is pumpin' up the city as a tourist destination and an attitude that comes through from here and there. Great views of the Lake. But it is not located on a lake and small adjoining hotels and inns, enjoy pure nature views (only in town). Specialties at the marimo must be covered in the souvenir shop's artifacts and you know, I looked.
