Lake Suwa, Nagano Prefecture

(3.5/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Take a swan-boat ride or stroll along the 16 km (9 mi) shoreline, enjoying the view of mountains at Lake Suwa, a lake with natural hot springs underneath its surface. Visit the Lake Suwa Geyser Center to see an active geyser and a network of seven gushing hot springs. In winter time, ice pressure ridges forming in the surface ice can reach a length of 30 cm (1 ft) due to the activity of undergorund hot springs. According to legend, those formations are signs of gods crossing the lake. The lake town also has a miso factory where you can taste some miso ice cream and soup. Use our Suwa trip builder to arrange your visit to Lake Suwa and other attractions in Suwa.

  • Lake of hope during a break of the Chuo Expressway service area. I think I admire, a vast lake in the mountains can feel natural.

  • 此次道日本的第二天是到長野縣的諏訪湖,此湖海拔 759 米,周長 16.2 公里是長野縣的最大湖泊。我們到訪當天是晴天,藍天加上湛藍湖水,冬天裡蕭瑟的樹木,感覺很棒。
