Lake Towada十和田湖


A lake which straddles Towada City, Aomori Prefecture and Kosaka Town, Kazuno County, Akita Prefecture. 46 kilometers in diameter, this caldera lake was formed through volcanic activity. With a maximum depth of 327 meters, it is the third deepest lake in Japan. On its east side, the lake drains into the Oirase River and the area has been designated a Natural Monument as well as a Special Place of Scenic Beauty under the title “Lake Towada and Oirase Stream.” Here visitors can enjoy seasonal natural scenery, including fresh verdure in summer and fall foliage in autumn. Kokanee salmon are also raised in the lake and during fishing season many people come here to fish.

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.
