Tazawako Lake, Semboku
(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.

  • 這裡也是賞楓勝地,但屬於較晚紅的,在觀光案內旁邊可以買環湖巴士券,或自駕。早餐黃昏繞湖走ㄧ走,美景各有特色!浮木神社,辰子像那兒更是地標,非去不可 
  • I tried 1周 the Lake in a rental car, but was somewhat boring drive. Landscape change is scarce. Lake itself is clean, dust or no impression has been contaminated, was a natural landscape. After this statue of visiting tourists tourists from Asia was that they heck what you felt about what?

  • There is a good story attached to the statue but it is nothing special to look at. What save it are the stunning views.
