Lake Suwa, Nagano Prefecture

3.7
Take a swan-boat ride or stroll along the 16 km (9 mi) shoreline, enjoying the view of mountains at Lake Suwa, a lake with natural hot springs underneath its surface. Visit the Lake Suwa Geyser Center to see an active geyser and a network of seven gushing hot springs. In winter time, ice pressure ridges forming in the surface ice can reach a length of 30 cm (1 ft) due to the activity of undergorund hot springs. According to legend, those formations are signs of gods crossing the lake. The lake town also has a miso factory where you can taste some miso ice cream and soup. Using our custom trip planner, Nagano Prefecture attractions like Lake Suwa can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
