Lake Kussharo, Teshikaga-cho

Go fishing, hiking, kayaking, and cycling around Lake Kussharo, Japan's largest caldera lake that freezes over completely in the winter. Soak away your worries in an outdoor hot spring bath and walk over hot sands along the lakeshore. You can also visit Wakoto Peninsula if you wish to see active sulfurous vents or enjoy a hike through the forest. Acidic water of the lake supports only a few species here, such as a rare form of cicada and rainbow trout.

  • Lake Kusharo seen from Bihoro Pass was really beautiful. When I came here before, I couldn't see it in the fog, but this time I could see it clearly. I was impressed by the place to come by all means.

  • Lake Akan and Lake Mashu are popular, but Lake Kusharo is also a majestic and fantastic lake that seems to be Hokkaido, so it's fun to dig sand by the lake, so you can bring your children along.
