Lake Shikotsu, Chitose

4.1
#1 of 29 in Things to do in Chitose
Away from the hustle and bustle of city life, Lake Shikotsu represents one of Japan's deepest bodies of water, offering fine views of a still-active volcano. Formed some 30,000 years ago, the caldera doesn't freeze in the winter, despite the cold northern climate. The eastern shore features hotels and hot spring resorts for tourists, while a nearby canyon shelters rich plant life and over twenty types of moss viewable from an observation deck--an ideal destination for nature lovers. Stroll around the lake's rim or hike up the volcano and enjoy the views over the deserted crater landscape and the glimmering water. Put Lake Shikotsu into our Chitose travel itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

    Exploring the port of Tomakomai and extended stay the effects of the weather and can be reached in about 30 minutes from the airport did not return to tourism, another one place and stopped. Trains and tracks heading to the port more time first shikotsu Lake Road Highway 276, Palm even straight Hokkaido seems to be way too, but sometimes is. Feels good. Rent a car navigation system in the shikotsu Lake nearby? So go out and only go to the shikotsu Lake hot spring facilities parking lot is paid. As you are able see the Lake was so worried and drove along the Lake. Nice stop briefly along the way found a park space is one place and just take pictures. Where you can feel free to explore management because the Lake is large and clean, but if is the best for that wanted to. However, their living environment has such a vast Lake No, is impressed with the beauty of the landscape. I wanted to play a little bit more if you have time, check more and ought.
