Water Body Nature / Park
Look over a vast vista of water at Lake Towada. At 327 m (1,073 ft) and with a surface area of 61.1 sq km (23.5 sq mi), it's the largest on the island, occupying the caldera of a currently active volcano. During the fall (late September through October), observe the trees on the crater rim turn an array of rusty tones. Enjoy a trip on the water with sightseeing tours sailing out across the lake, or take in the lakeside views from multiple angles at four observational platforms dotted around the water's edge. Use our Mogami-machi itinerary maker to arrange your visit to Lake Towada and other attractions in Mogami-machi.
