Lake Kussharo, Teshikaga-cho
(4.1/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Go fishing, hiking, kayaking, and cycling around Lake Kussharo, Japan's largest caldera lake that freezes over completely in the winter. Soak away your worries in an outdoor hot spring bath and walk over hot sands along the lakeshore. You can also visit Wakoto Peninsula if you wish to see active sulfurous vents or enjoy a hike through the forest. Acidic water of the lake supports only a few species here, such as a rare form of cicada and rainbow trout. Put Lake Kussharo on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Teshikaga-cho trip itinerary builder.

  • Light of the Moon was not Super Moon is rising up from the opposite side of the Lake on the surface of the Lake, however, was making a great road. Bright winter Moon and moon towards the star road is unclear. Swans swim on the surface of the Lake was up at dawn the next morning the changes gradually over the color of the sky, illuminated by the Sun is beautiful beyond description.

  • Lake kussharo kusshii is famous. Weather permitting, views green and beautiful Lake from bihoro mountain pass, another Tsu pass. Went in August for the sand bath, Lake is the most popular spot where just dug a little sand, hot springs come in campgrounds and rest, and surrounded tent, it was very crowded. Only lakeside sand water except in very quiet and shops too. Teshikaga suspension is fairly in the car ran to the nearest convenience store. Lake named kusshii Kaido Road was exhilarating as driving green.

  • Area of 79.7 km2 and around 57 km, maximum depth of 120 m and largest caldera lake in Japan average 28.4 meters. Large area of sixth at lakes in Japan. I know much larger when looking at from bihoro mountain pass. Kussharo Lake "kusshii Highway" also fun.... But a strong wind much sucking, visited the... cold.
