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.

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...
