#1 of 8 in Spas in Teshikaga-cho
Treat your feet to the spectacular sensation of hot sands and volcanic heat under cold water, as you enjoy taking Lake Kussharo Sand Bath. Set on the shore of a caldera lake, the largest in Akan National Park, the black sand underneath the rippling shallows exudes heat, which you can experience by walking on a little wooden plank then digging your feet into the sand. Appreciate the feeling as you admire the surrounding mountain views, and don't forget to bring a small towel with you. With a circumference of 57 km (36 mi), the lake area also provides various other outdoor activities, such as fishing, kayaking, hiking, and cycling. You can also take a dip in a pool near the beach. Lake Kussharo Sand Bath is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Teshikaga-cho Edition.

  • You can enjoy the snowy mountains in the distance and the still frozen lake, many swans, and foot baths while admiring the scenery. It's pretty hot, but it's still there. It seems to be able to dig sand by myself and to be able to do the foot bath.
