Lake Suwa, Nagano Prefecture
Categories: Bodies of Water, Nature & Parks
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.

長野旅行の途中で立ち寄りました。 中央道諏訪湖サービスエリアから諏訪湖を眺めましたがとても綺麗で雄大です。 遠くの山並みにとても合っています。Stopped in the middle of the Nagano trip. View Lake Suwa from the service area of the Lake Suwa Road Central is very simple and is a magnificent sight. Very suitable for mountain range in the distance.show original
やっぱり故郷の諏訪湖は大きくてホッとする。今は水草が一杯であまり綺麗じゃないけど、やっぱり高原都市の象徴だね！After all big lake home, relieved. Now a waterweed is full sounds not very beautiful, but it is a symbol of the plateau city.show original
さすが有名な湖だけあって超でかいです。 また湖独特の対岸が見える感じもすごく綺麗でした。 諏訪大社とせっとでいかれてみては？As a famous Lake, as is too big. Also look is unique across the Lake was very nice. Suwa Taisha Shrine and set in a try out of order?show original
