Towadako (Lake Towada)babibubebo | 18 11 2007
Towadako is on the border of Akita and Aomori Prefectures. Towadako, which is Japan’s 3rd deepest lake, has beautiful water that depending on the time of year and the weather changes to various shades of blue. Towadako is situated in the crater of an extinct volcano and as a result is surrounded by small mountains. These make for nice overhead shots of the lake, but there are also trails that go around the lake if you feel up to some hiking.
There are many hotels and a few hostels around Towadako so finding a place to stay isn’t really a problem unless you plan a last minute trip to go during a holiday or peak season (fall). While the lake is beautiful be sure not to miss Oirase Stream. If you live in Tohoku it is definitely worth a visit.
