Create an itinerary including Lake Chuzenji
Escape the urban jungle and find peace at Lake Chuzenji, created 20,000 years ago when the eruption of Mount Nantai blocked a river. Every season offers something special to behold, like the blooming of cherry blossoms in spring, bird-watching and hiking in summer, vibrant fall foliage, and the lake's winter festival. Admire the vacation houses built by European embassies around the shoreline, or head to Akechidaira Peak via cable car to experience a panoramic view of this natural haven. The lake drains through the 97 m (318 ft) Kegon Falls; visit the small village nearby for shopping, relaxation, dining, and plenty of parking.
