Lake Towada, Tohoku
(3.8/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Enjoyed the view while strolling the Lake including the statue of the Virgin. Had been found in the prefectures of Aomori and Akita prefectures, both signs.

  • Oirase stream, we went through to Lake towada. Could not weather the scenery of Lake towada in the long-awaited. To cry even in the interest of time, cannot see the statue of the Virgin, the cruise ship ride, and up to. Reluctantly, to aim at Aomori city, faced 102 Highway bypass. Notice that the came and climbed the steep mountain path overlooking wide Lake towada. It was parked on the side of the road, looking from the top of the Mountain Lake towada and good views. Gas was just hateful. Gray, felt awfully atmosphere.

  • Dazzling green greenery grow. Cruise ferries running in 50 minutes and is satisfied. In fourth was saying 300 tens of meters. It is the Tokyo Tower. Impressive.
