Lake Kussharo Sand Bath, Teshikaga-cho

3.2
#2 of 8 in Spas in Teshikaga-cho
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. Lake Kussharo Sand Bath is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Teshikaga-cho Edition.

  •  I think that comes out hot sand bath is digging in sand Lake kussharo Lake South and named.  It is also a place so that hot spring for a Midwinter freeze only around lots of swans comes winter. We visited on 11 March, but already 10-20 or so came and swans. Right next store is selling bread for feeding the swans. And show it to the Swans come directly eat bread in hand.
