Lake Mashu, Teshikaga-cho

Sometimes called the clearest lake in the world, Lake Mashu formed in the caldera of a potentially active stratovolcano, making it one of the most fertile and volatile areas in Japan. Surrounded by steep crater walls 200 m (660 ft) high, the transparent lake harbors an abundant diversity of life. During summer you might witness how the thick mist obscures its crystal surface, making the entire area even more mysterious. (A local legend even says that if you can see the surface of the lake during the mist, you'll have bad luck.) Many observation decks dot the area; visit all of them for that perfect photograph.

The first look at the station visitors will also come, so people are very many, take pictures to grasp the time, than hemp, not better time this lake scenein is great, in the special terrain, out of different beauty, with the general lake is completely different, but it is high to see, there is a kind of vulgar beauty. To the third prospect of Taiwan people under the less than, but the space is also small, can be seen from different angles of the lake is very different, looking at this crater lake, is really a wonderful nature, one of the three lakes, Mo Zhou Lake, is 120 points of the super-first-class scenery.
