Lake Towada

Lake Towada was formed roughly 200,000 years ago by a series of volcanic eruptions. The resulting crater was the slowly filled with rainwater until it reached a depth of 327m (1,073ft), making it the third deepest lake in Japan. The sky and surrounding mountains reflected in the glassy lake surface is a sight you need to see to believe!
Flowing 14km from Lake Towada to Yakiyama, the Oirase Gorge is a popular tourist destination for its pristine natural scenery.
