  Challenging Okama
by Sharrie

OKAMA is the incredibly beautiful crater lake formed more than 380 years ago after an eruption.

This is one of the most amazing sceneries one gets to see in Japan. Like a rare gem, it glows under the sunlight & on a clear day the image is so perfect that one finds it hard to leave. I was here for almost 3 hours & had such an uplifting time that it will always remain to be a treasured moment in my life.
