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.

  • beautiful scenery that the swan and mountains in the winter. but people are afraid the bird would have brought bird flu to human if contact. 
  • Lake kussharo is located in Akan National Park Hokkaido's largest freshwater lake. Near the Lake, wonderful spring and kawayu Onsen, sand bath, wagon peninsula and bihoro mountain pass tourist attractions there. Kussharo-Lake of my favourite is "see Highland Koshimizu 725-kussharo-Lake" and "Peninsula around the wagon trails". Highland Koshimizu is 725 m Mokoto hillside 1,000 metres above sea level, overlooking the caldera of buckling kussharo-kussharo-Lake and the surrounding mountains also could be a lookout. Peninsula around the wagon trail is a boardwalk around the wagon peninsula jutting out into Lake kussharo in less than an hour. You can feel both the dynamic landscape of Lake kussharo and bites around.

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.
