"Lake Himenume" Rishiri-to Things to Do Tip by akikonomu

Rishiri-to Things to Do: 3 reviews and 3 photos

  Mountain, gulls and lake
by akikonomu

The lake is about 5km from Oshidomari port and takes about 75 minutes to reach on foot. The track along the sea is relatively easy until I had to ascend a steep slope which took my breath away. Literally and metaphorically.

The lake's name is derived from the type of salmon released into it. At the lake, flocks of gulls await your arrival whilst avid photographs await passing clouds to get the perfect shot of lake, gulls and mountain.

Directions: East of Oshidomari port
