Lake Kussharo Sand Bath, Teshikaga-cho

(130+ reviews on the web)
Hot Spring
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.
