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.

  • 冬天的田澤湖雖然沒辦法用步行的方式,可以到遊客中心購買遊湖票卷搭乘巴士。司機會在定點放遊客下車,讓遊客走走拍照。下雪時,田澤湖旁的神社覆蓋上白雪,充滿日本雪國的味道。若有機會,一定要到田澤湖一遊,感受屬於東北的雪國風情。
