Treat your feet to the spectacular sensation of hot sands and volcanic heat under cold water, as you enjoy taking Lake Kussharo Sand Bath. Set on the shore of a caldera lake, the largest in Akan National Park, the black sand underneath the rippling shallows exudes heat, which you can experience by walking on a little wooden plank then digging your feet into the sand. Appreciate the feeling as you admire the surrounding mountain views, and don't forget to bring a small towel with you. With a circumference of 57 km (36 mi), the lake area also provides various other outdoor activities, such as fishing, kayaking, hiking, and cycling. You can also take a dip in a pool near the beach. Lake Kussharo Sand Bath is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Teshikaga-cho Edition.
Lake Kussharo Sand Bath Reviews
遠くに見える雪山とまだ凍った湖にたくさんのハクチョウ、そんな景色を眺めながら足湯を楽しめます。 かなり熱いですが、あったまります。 自分で砂を掘って足湯することもできるようです。 more »You can enjoy the snowy mountains in the distance and the still frozen lake, many swans, and foot baths while admiring the scenery. It's pretty hot, but it's still there. It seems to be able to dig sand by myself and to be able to do the foot bath.
砂湯は屈斜路湖湖畔にある観光地です。眺めも良くボートやスワンボートの貸し出しも行っています。その名の通り砂からお湯が涌き出てきます。屈斜路湖一番の人気スポットです。 more »Sand water is a tourist spot on the shore of Lake Kussharo. The view is good and boats and swan boats can be rented out. As the name suggests, hot water comes out of the sand. It is the most popular spot of Lake Kussharo.
