Lake Kussharo, Teshikaga-cho

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.

  • This Lake is located in Akan National Park and is the largest, you can go boating and swimming. After dropping the luggage in our accommodation, we headed on foot towards a thermal source of free access that is located at the Lake and we bathed in a kind of natural pool with water up to 42 degrees, which directly overlooks the lag o and out of a large community of white swans. There are small changing room where you can leave your clothes and wear the costume (unlike the other onsen where you go completely naked) and the beneficial water temperature makes you forget the cold outside!
