Lake Kussharo Sand Bath, Teshikaga-cho
(3.2/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Treat your feet to the spectacular sensation of hot sands and volcanic heat under cold water, as you enjoy taking Lake Kussharo Sand Bath. Set on the shore of a caldera lake, the largest in Akan National Park, the black sand underneath the rippling shallows exudes heat, which you can experience by walking on a little wooden plank then digging your feet into the sand. Appreciate the feeling as you admire the surrounding mountain views, and don't forget to bring a small towel with you. With a circumference of 57 km (36 mi), the lake area also provides various other outdoor activities, such as fishing, kayaking, hiking, and cycling. You can also take a dip in a pool near the beach. Use our Teshikaga-cho tour planner to add Lake Kussharo Sand Bath and other attractions to your Teshikaga-cho vacation plans.

  • 每年秋至春季,來自西佰利亞的野生天鵝便來渡冬。為這恬靜的火山口湖增添不少生氣。 聽說嚴寒時湖面結冰晶體因分裂而形成御神渡(傳說是神在湖上走過而形成) 各位有機會到訪可別錯過這景點! 
  • On the beach and dig a little warm water (? ) Wells up inside you. Where you can experience and have already dug and gone all the way there. Bus tour and many foreign tourists, pretty crowded. To sign to its left were average, and tourist groups that wanted to take pictures with a sign containing the name of a place is, or was, but found we were promptly and took it. "Sand bath" look clearly written just the right sign in new signs look good, "sunayu" is on the left (was the case? ) And written in dilute colors the picture on the right is very good I thought. I stopped by when Lake kussharo did not watch so much!

  • Foot has 2 locations in East and West. Souvenir shop, either. It is amazing that comes out just a little sand to dig in the hot springs.
