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.

  • We stayed at the Hot Springs Hotel on the shores of Lake kussharo-weekday mid-11, enjoyed the kussharo Lake surrounding tourism in late autumn. I stopped at that time is a sand bath. Winter at Lake near the thermal springs emerge a hot sand bath is literally digging in sand Lake and tourist attraction is Lake freezes. So, throughout the winter, swans wintering in this neighborhood there is. As autumn deepens the swans are coming from Siberia. Whenever we visited mid-11, were already coming Swan of the 20 or so. Undo Chinese people have 10 people on a lake and took photos with the Swan.

  • Parking is also being renovated is cold this time of year, and you can also take a walk on the shore of Lake. If you're lucky, meet in the Swan. Swan will be close to anyone who has a white plastic bag. Perhaps feeding are probably waiting. It is pretty friendly. On this day, Swan other birds also was resting the wing on the shores.

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.
