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.

  • 以豎立於湖畔的「辰子飛姬之銅像」而日本全國聞名的秋田 田澤湖, 面積雖不大,但卻是日本最深的湖泊,以清澈的湖水為特徵,透明度高達31公尺。由於田澤湖位於高原之中,四季景色變化多端非常迷人,上次盛夏来訪,湖上泛舟嬉水的遊客很多,這回晚秋重遊,枫紅的美景漂亮極了!  more »
