A creation that dates back to 20,000 years ago, the Lake Chuzenji is one of the most striking features of the Nikko National Park.
A result of Mount Nantai erupted lava that further blocked the river. Sprawling across a whopping 11.62-kilometer square with a circumference of 25 kilometers, this enormous lake is a must-see in Nikko for several reasons. The lake is like a painting in the fall months!
Surrounding this attraction are the many hot springs of Nikko and two of Japan’s best waterfalls - Kegon Waterfall and the Ryuzu Waterfall. The circumference of the lake makes for a great hiking adventure. You can even take up a sightseeing boat to get more of Lake Chuzenji’s beauty!
