Lake Kinrin, Yufu

3.2
Enjoy the serene atmosphere of Lake Kinrin, a shallow, clear lake fed by a couple of rivers and boasting two hot springs. The lake, named after the golden scales of fish reflecting the sunlight, attracts visitors for its notable phenomenon of mist evaporating from the surface, most apparent in winter and fall. Take a relaxing stroll along the lakeside boardwalk, or have a picnic and take in the peaceful atmosphere and lush green setting. Put Lake Kinrin into our Yufu trip maker site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Nice serene lake, recommended to visit in the morning around sunrise timing. Parking is around JPY200 per hour at the carparks around the lake.  more »
  • It was associated with a big lake because it was taken by a sightseeing bus, but it was just a pond like a fishing moat.

  • Beautiful lake. Go in the morning whereby less tourists & it's misty.
