Katanuma Lake潟沼


A caldera lake made roughly 1,200 years ago by volcanic activity, giving the surrounding area a unique sulfur scent. The lake offers a spectacularly beautiful landscape with the water changing color between various shades of blue, emerald green, and milky white depending on the weather due to the large amount of sulfur in the water. The high level of acidity of the water means no creatures live in the lake. You can enjoy this natural beauty by walking around the lake and renting a boat.

          Lying along the northeastern coast of Japan, Miyagi prefecture is home to lashings of natural parks, oysters, and hot springs. While the bustling city of Sendai offers some simple city entertainment, it’s the Matsushima islands that deserve the most attention, having boosted the prefecture’s reputation as one of Japan’s most scenic views.
