Yunoko Lake, Nikko

#5 of 30 in Nature in Nikko
Water Body · Nature / Park
The so-called "lake of hot water," Yunoko Lake represents the merging place of different waters from the hot springs of the area, and serves as a favorite go-to for a day off in the pristine nature. Enjoy the view of the waterfall the lake creates upon the edge of steep cliffs, which contributes to the overall calming atmosphere. Onsite accommodations provide the option to stay overnight, but you can also spend the day relaxing and having a picnic, or go and try the boat rides. The site also offers a number of bars and restaurants where you can grab a bite while enjoying the view of the surrounding landscape. Take a look at our Nikko online day trip planner to schedule your visit to Yunoko Lake and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • During my visit to Nikko on year end, I have been to this Lake as well. One of the most beautiful lake I have ever seen. At that time it was frozen and was able to walk over it. Place was so silent that if you throw any stone you can hear clear sound of it and stone can go far away due to ice. Nearby there was a nice restaurant and enjoyed local food there. In summer, for hiking also this lake is good place. Must go!!!
  • とても美しい景色です。 四季折々の素敵な景色が見られます。 個人的には山の緑と湖の緑が重なる夏が気に入ってます。 近くに温泉宿もたくさんあり,ほとんどの所で日帰り入浴も出来ます。 美しい景色と温泉の組み合わせは最高です。 美しい自然と管理のとても行き届いた設備のある観光地です。 日光までのバスも走っていて,アクセスもかなり良いです。
