Hot Spring Thermal Spa
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.

  • Springs can be hand-dig a little sand in front of the Lake and hot springs. And easy to have a scoop of children playing in a sandbox, and I think ^ ^ can easily create in your foot bath. It is fun.

  • Come every year. It is best in the East. Nice view and also quiet it's garbage gets thrown away. Clean toilet! To Lundin and enter the foot bath before going to bed so cold once you desire and my husband is cool! And.... Joke if you think cold. It's foot stopped because is warm you even dig the ass covered with sand. I had such a thing if there is time limits written wanted (T_T) is I love camping.

  • Kussharo Lake, Lake and almost touching the sand bath. Adult foot long, kid's fun! Warm water is boiling. I think parking was fantastic and nice to look at Lake kussharo in front of. It is also putting their feet in the sand and look good. Eagle was in the middle of the road of the Lake kussharo. Instinctively, I doubted my eyes. Have seen foxes or deer on the roadside, Eagle was on the road, so I realized to Hokkaido. It seems also the Habitat of swans.

Where to stay in Teshikaga-cho

The town of Teshikaga-cho itself has a good array of hotels, traditional ryokan, and a couple of more budget-friendly hostels. The more luxurious among them have onsite onsens and restaurants, and with proximity to the main train line, the area offers convenience for travelers just arriving or soon to leave. But the surrounding rural spots have just as much in terms of accommodations, particularly close to the lakes, with clusters of ryokans, some campgrounds, and luxury resorts.
