Juniko Lakes十二湖

Other Historic Site/Building

"This is the name given for the 33 lakes and swamps on the undulating plateau of Fukaura Town. A landslide caused by an earthquake in 1704 is said to have created the lakes from part of a stream becoming filled. The small lakes are hidden by the forest when seen from Okuzure located in the middle of Mt. Kuzure, and the name ""Juniko"" (12 lakes) comes from the fact that only 12 large ones can be seen. Lake Aoike, with its distinctive pure blue water that looks as if ink was spilled, is often given as a lake representing them all. The colors that change according to the season and time is the main attraction. In addition, you can also enjoy strolls while observing animals and plants that inhabit the surrounding forest."

          Aomori Main Areas


          Centuries-old stories of samurai at Kakunodate and the remains of millennia-old archaeological sites including the likes of Isedotai invite history buffs to delve into Aomori's fascinating history. As the most northern prefecture on the Japanese mainland, Aomori enjoys a cooler climate, which makes it a welcome escape from the southern cities for combining castles, art galleries, and summer festivals with the great outdoors.
