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.

  • 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!!!
  • It is a very beautiful landscape. There are lovely views of the seasons. I liked summer overlap mountain and Lake green personally. Nearby and also a lot of hot-spring hotel, you can also soak in most places. It is the best combination of beautiful scenery and hot springs. Beautiful nature and is a tourist destination with very well-managed facilities. Running buses from sunlight, is also quite good.
