Visit Lake Ikeda and see if you can spot the aquatic monster "Issie," reported to dwell in the depths of this caldera. The largest on the island, the lake has a surface area of 11 sq km (4.2 sq mi), and plays home to some sizeable eels. Swim in the temperate waters, enjoy the mountain scenery, and snap pictures of the smiling statue of the lake's mythical resident. A few restaurants offer extensive menus and tanks with examples of the large eels on display. During the months of February to March, the areas surrounding the lake burst with yellow rape flowers in full bloom, creating a very picturesque view.

Lake Ikeda Reviews
昔、ネス湖のネッシーのように、池田湖のイッシーってUMAの話を思い出すくらい静かな湖でした。池田湖からの開聞岳にビューは相当感動する景色です。ほんの30分ほどのドライブでこの感動です。 more »Once upon a time, like Nessie of Loch Ness, Issie of Lake Ikeda was such a quiet lake that reminds me of the story of UMA. The view from Lake Ikeda to Mt. Kaimon is quite moving. It's just a 30-minute drive.
ネッシーなどUMAが有名になったころ、ここ池田湖にも怪獣イッシーが有名になりました。が、さすがにイッシーは見えませんでしたが、巨大なウナギに出会えました。 more »When UMA such as Nessie became famous, the monster Issie became famous here in Lake Ikeda. However, I could not see Issie as expected, but I was able to meet a huge eel.
