Must see · Water Body · Nature / Park
Take a walk around Goshikinuma Lake, a set of five strikingly colored lakes. The lakes have existed since 1887, when a nearby volcano erupted and sent a mass of earth and rubble down into what was then a river, creating separate bodies of water. Minerals in the earth have made the water of each a different shade of blue, while plants and algae in the depths have a red tinge, creating a captivating scene of vivid colors. Hike between the five main lakes to snap photos capturing each one's individual look. Plan your visit to Goshikinuma Lake and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Kitashiobara-mura trip maker app.
