Tohoku Sights

Towada-ko (Lake Towada)

Fodor's Review

Thanks to its famous fall colors, Lake Towada welcomes a rumbling fleet of packed tour buses when the leaves begin to change. The lake fills a volcanic crater to a depth of 334 meters (1,096 feet), making it the third deepest in Japan. The crater is held aloft like a giant goblet above the surrounding topography, giving it a dramatic illusory aspect. There are boat tours that let you float by the lovely landscape.
