Lake Tazawa

Shunchan

Dec 8, 2016

At 423 metres, Lake Tazawa is Japan’s deepest lake, with water that’s a clear, vivid blue. It’s a spot so beautiful and charming, it’s been named a Hyakkei spot, or one of the best 100 scenic landscapes in Japan.

To keep its natural beauty, much of the shore remains undeveloped. However, at the lake's eastern end, you can find a few shops, restaurants, bicycles for rent, and a tourist boat pier. These operate from late April to early November, taking a relaxing 40 minute route to the Tatsuko Statue and back, at 1,200 yen per person.

Dressed in bronze, the Tatsuko statue shows a legendary princess who was turned into a lake-goddess for wishing for eternal youth and beauty. And in winter, she might just seem a little more mysterious to you.
