Inspirock Rating:
3.2/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web
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.

  • 金鱗湖離由布院的市區不遠,開車大概五到八分鐘車程就到了。但從大路彎進往湖區的道路時,路幅相當狹小,且與行人共用車道,要非常小心駕駛。沿路的停車場還蠻多的,適合將車子停在路邊停車場再一路步行到湖邊。金鱗湖的面積不大,但搭配上遠山的山景,別有一番小巧玲瓏的風味,山邊總是有山嵐遼繞,再加上湖面相當平靜沒有波瀾,因此遠山與雲霧煙嵐的景象都會倒映在湖中,有種說不出的心曠神怡。整個湖區不大,所以大概花個15到...  read more »
  • 從湯布院大街走了快30分鐘才走到過去,天氣好,出門旅遊心情好,看什麼都份外美好。湖上有两隻不怕人的肥鴨,湖水清澈可見魚。 
  • Too much chinese and koreans. The lake is smaller than what i expected.
  • This lake is more like a shallow pond. The big central building really disturbs the harmony of the nature. Recommend come on sunny day.
  • How can it be called a lake with the size like this ? Too small with too too many tourists and too many rubbish in shallow water ( you could see shoes , plastic bags , umbrella etc... under shallow water may be caused by the tourists) ! It couldn't reflect its name " golden scales" at all unless in a sunny day at the right moment with the right angle of the sun .
  • Fantastic scene with fog over the lake
  • Nice.
