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.

    It was very spacious and beautiful lakes. Floating swan boat and pleasure boat into a Lake, the picturesque landscape and I thought. Water is very transparent and clean.

    Cloudy around the closed shop I visited on the first day of the summer holidays, but there was an empty, lonely crowd was. Lakeside tourist hotel is closed so desolate atmosphere will be encouraged further.

    Went looking at Lake from Highway 102, went from black stones are slightly higher at first position. Open window but it was kinda hot from the Lake did too much wind or calm green, able to run comfortably. This time too much time not afford towada shrine and statue of maiden's attractions are most 寄rezu, they could either also of would make time to shop opportunities come to care about because I want to drink coffee in the lake view from the window. Route using Highway 102 out of your nose tail mountain in the Middle without pottage centerline road I feel better because I think clearly separate likes from Aomori back Oirase over or just south the kosaka from easy-to-run.
