Lake Suwa, Nagano Prefecture

3.8
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. Using our custom trip planner, Suwa attractions like Lake Suwa can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • It's actually because the movie "your Name" came here, but if you want to see the whole lake, you have to go to the stone Park to get a glimpse of the scene in the movie.

  • Very nice lake. There is boat rental.
  • wonderful chilling place
  • Beautiful lake
  • Mitsuhaaaaaaaa
  • This is the Lake attracts people anyway. I like also go over to Fireworks and play since childhood. Shrines flourished from this Lake and customs. Sounds like the guardian deity of the entire Suwa. Incidentally on Saturday when it was frozen. It inflates expectations of the sacred cross.
