Lake Shikotsu is a large caldera lake of almost 40 kilometers in circumference in Chitose City, Hokkaido. It is Japan’s northernmost ice-free lake with high water transparency and a maximum water depth of 363 meters. The three Shikotsu peaks of Mt. Eniwa, Mt. Fuppushi and Mt. Tarumae tower over the lake surrounded by green forests. We encourage you to enjoy the view of the cobalt blue scenery from the underwater sightseeing cruise boat.

Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
