Lake Kinrin, Yufu

(900 reviews on the web)
Water Body Nature / Park
Enjoy the serene atmosphere of Lake Kinrin, a shallow, clear lake fed by a couple of rivers and boasting two hot springs. The lake, named after the golden scales of fish reflecting the sunlight, attracts visitors for its notable phenomenon of mist evaporating from the surface, most apparent in winter and fall. Take a relaxing stroll along the lakeside boardwalk, or have a picnic and take in the peaceful atmosphere and lush green setting. To visit Lake Kinrin and other attractions in Yufu, use our Yufu itinerary builder.
