Inspirock Rating:
3.5/5 based on 260+ 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.
