Travel Guide - Lake Tazawa-ko

InformationInformation

Lake Tazawa-ko is a classic caldera lake with a mystic atmosphere. The circular lake with about 20 kilometers of circumference is surrounded by the wide crest of a crater. The depth of the lake is 423.4 meters, which is the deepest in Japan, and its waters are the second most transparent after Lake Mashu-ko in Hokkaido. The bronze statue of the legendary Princess Tatsuko, standing on the western shore, is a symbol of the lake.
Lake Tazawa-ko is a popular place for not only sightseeing but also other activities such as aquatic sports and cycling. The lake offers boat excursions, swimming beaches, row boats and a road around the lake shore which can be followed by bus, car or on a bicycle rented at Tazawa-kohan. You may find more enjoyment by using the lake as a staging point for hikes along the trails of Mt. Komagatake and perhaps combining these with a stay in one of the isolated hot spring Ryokan inns scattered around Nyuto Onsen Hot Spring.
