Akan Lake, Kushiro

4.0
Formed by volcanic activities thousands of years ago, Akan Lake plays home to an unusual species of native algae that resemble large green spheres. Part of a national park, the lake draws plenty of visitors thanks to the waterside spa facilities at the nearby resort town of Akankohan. Hike around the lake on the network of walking trails to find several natural oddities, including bubbling mud pools. Alternatively, you can hop aboard a local boat tour to see the lake and the surrounding area from a different perspective. For Akan Lake and beyond, use our Kushiro trip maker app to get the most from your Kushiro vacation.

  • I forgot the time, and it is a masterpiece in the superb view of nature. The starry sky at night was also the best! The autumn leaves are so beautiful that you can sigh and i want to visit again. I thought that the air was clear, and it was thought that it was this to be washed. I visited here in July, but the expression changes with the seasons, so I would like to see the beautiful view of winter by all means.

  • The scenery is wonderful and worth going to once. I went there in the middle of October, but the autumn leaves were beautiful. The hot spring town is the Showa era and time has stopped.

  • A pretty lake where you can enjoy the lake view and walking along the hot spring street. Of course, the hot spring is totally worth it! In summer time, the sightseeing boat is available, and in winter time you may want to do fishing and ice activities.
  • The town here is very small and as 1 convenience store and a couple of Japanese restaurants. The small shopping area is dominated by handcrafted souvenir shops. There is very little to do in the town and can easily be seen in 1 and 1/2 hours.
