Go fishing, hiking, kayaking, and cycling around Lake Kussharo, Japan's largest caldera lake that freezes over completely in the winter. Soak away your worries in an outdoor hot spring bath and walk over hot sands along the lakeshore. You can also visit Wakoto Peninsula if you wish to see active sulfurous vents or enjoy a hike through the forest. Acidic water of the lake supports only a few species here, such as a rare form of cicada and rainbow trout. Using our online itinerary creator, Teshikaga-cho attractions like Lake Kussharo can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
Lake Kussharo Reviews
ホテルから雄大な原始林に囲まれた美しいコバルトブルーの湖を眺めることができました。秋の澄み切った空が高く、木々も紅葉し、湖面を赤く染めっています。周囲は５７キロと日本最カルデラ湖です。 more »We have beautiful cobalt blue surrounded by a majestic primeval forest from the Hotel lake view. Clear autumn skies, trees and leaves, red dyed water. Around 57 kg and is Japan's Caldera Lakes.
Visited Lake Kussharo to view beautiful crater lake with white swans by the shores. Feed the swans with popcorn and took some close up photos. Then had a hot pot lunch with special fatty tuna sashimi ... more »
These are beautiful swans that you can feed. Warning. Do not bring your own food, you have to buy food from the souvenir shop near the lake.
Beautiful especially during winter...
