Tazawako Lake, Semboku

(3.4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy the natural beauty of Tazawako Lake, located in the center of Akita Prefecture. Japan's deepest lake at 423 m (1,388 ft), it features a circular shape that scientists believe to be the result of either volcanic activity or meteor impact. An all-gold statue of a woman named Tatsuko stands on the western shore: legend says she was cursed by being transformed into a dragon, and would later drown in the waters here. Bring a camera to capture the constantly changing color of the water, from indigo blue to turquoise green. Treat yourself to a visit to one of many hot spring spas operating in the surrounding hills. Our Semboku tourist route planner makes visiting Tazawako Lake and other Semboku attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Akita city centre will arrive in a few hours. Visited in February. The surrounding trees painted white with snow and Lake in beautiful blue glow in the gilded statue of tatsuko is very shine. The legend of Lake tazawa tatsuko? I still enjoy investigating the. There has been sight slowly appreciating in the tourist buses arrived with several writers and tourists who come from other countries have taken, will move shortly. Get the impression around the souvenir shop, somewhat lonely.

  • Snow Lake no one falls. Golden over this image. Was fascinated by the atmosphere of the end of the world for some reason. Over this same young woman statue as representing the maiden's shyness, is entering the open-air bathing in my pose and I thought.

  • I stopped by on the way to the water of the crane from Akita city. After this, beautiful statue in gilded than I thought. Because it was a windless day also Lake snow around the staff. I think that looks at once, it wouldn't hurt.
