Lake Chuzenji

Situated at the foot of Mount Nantai, is Lake Chuzenji, a scenic lake that’s arguably one of Nikko’s most breathtaking natural sites. Originally the lake was formed from an eruption by Mount Nantai, almost 20,000 years ago. To this day the surrounding areas of the lake feel relatively untouched except for the eastern end of the lake where Chuzenji Onsen, a small hot spring town was built. From hiking and exploring to relaxing in one of the local hot springs, Chuzenji and its neighboring area boasts a lot of options for those wanting to spend a day in this naturally stunning area.
