High up in the Japanese hills sits Lake Shirakaba, an artificial lake found on a plateau between two mountains at 1,416 m (4,646 ft) above sea level. Take time to unwind and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere and green forests that fill your view as you take a leisurely stroll or as you sit on one of the many benches along the water's edge. You can hire pedal boats and navigate across the water. If you look towards the middle of the lake, notice a small fountain made of rocks stacked upon each other. Using our custom trip planner, Chino attractions like Lake Shirakaba can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Really a good place to chill. The best view point be one along the Venus Line where you can watch the lake from above
