Lake Kinrin, Yufu

2.5
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. Put Lake Kinrin into our Yufu trip maker site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • It was smaller than I had imagined. Parking lot parking during the day of the holiday, the car took a little time. Fewer tourists near the lakeside shrine, was great.

  • I went there with rain, if weather is good, taking photo must be better. However,with rain means not so much people, is also good to take good photo there!  more »
  • The air is crisp and it is very peaceful to go early before the sunrise to take in the sights. Then wait for the sunrise.  more »
