Fodor's Review

Between May and October you can enjoy the lake from a canoe with the help of the Akan Nature Center, which offers two- or eight-person Canadian canoes for a 45-minute beginner course (¥2,100), a 90-minute adventure course (¥6,500), or, for the strong-of-arm, the 2½-hour Yaitai Island course (¥7,350). Reserve one day in advance. The center is in Akanko Han, near the Ainu village and next to Spa Inn Yamaguchi on the north end of the town street. If you are impervious to cold, it also has winter programs.
