Lake Hibara-ko

Travel Guide - Lake Hibara-ko

Information

Lake Hibara-ko, 40 kilometers in circuit, is the largest lake in Ura-Bandai.
The lake is picturesque with jagged shorelines and numerous islets.
On the lakeshore are many campgrounds and bungalows.
On the south bank there is a boarding point for sightseeing boat, and on the north bank there is a Torii gate of Oyamazumi-jinja Shrine which enshrines a village sunk in the lake by a volcanic eruption.
