"Serenity" Japan Things to Do Tip by Sharrie

Japan Things to Do: 736 reviews and 1,308 photos

by Sharrie

Enjoy this beautiful lake on a cruise boat, cycling around its scenic shores or skiing in Winter.

A breathtaking experience!

LAKE TAZAWA (TAZAWAKO) (423.4m): Deepest crater lake with a circumference of about 20 km. Tazawako is the 2nd most transparent lake in Japan.

The plateau by the lake is a resort with many hot springs & a ski resort.

TAZAWAKO conveys a feeling of calm & bliss. I've seldom experienced such emotions in Japan. Japan has always been a place of activities rather than relaxation. It's a very wonderful feeling & I'm sure I'll be back for more in the future.
