Yunoko Lake - Review

A hot water lake anyone?!

It is no news Japan has some of the world’s highly volcanic terrains, and so not surprisingly its water bodies are at atypical temperatures. Perched adjacent to the Senjogahara plateau this hot water lake is a consequence of Mount Nantai’s volcanic eruptions some 20,000 odd years ago. The same consequence is a genesis of other popular attractions of Nikko like the Yutaki waterfall.

The lakes environ has become the habitat of some beautiful birds, superannuated forests and of course the popular marshlands of the Senjogahara plateau. As you explore this area, you will be subject to the peculiar smell of Sulphur in the air. You will find several hot spring resorts here, where you can sit, take a dip and just spend the day at your own leisure.

Depending on the time of the year you visit, you can carry out some great activities around the lake like hiking, fishing, boating among others. In the autumn months, this lake is a heart-stealer from literally, every single angle!

Yunoko Lake, Nikko Reviews

  • During my visit to Nikko on year end, I have been to this Lake as well. One of the most beautiful lake I have ever seen. At that time it was frozen and was able to walk over it. Place was so silent that if you throw any stone you can hear clear sound of it and stone can go far away due to ice. Nearby there was a nice restaurant and enjoyed local food there. In summer, for hiking also this lake is good place. Must go!!!

  • 個人的には、最高のプレイスポットだと思っています。シーズンは、5月1日から9月30日までとなります。定期的に釣り大会やシーズンをとおしてのトラウトランキングも実施しています。釣り方は、ルアー、フライ、エサ釣りで、ボートでも岸からでもオーケー。ただし、ボートの方が幾分、有利だと思います。トラウトファンにお奨めです。

  • 奥日光の源泉があります。湯ノ湖の周りは3キロあり散策可能。駐車場無料。コンビニや飲食店はありません。ホテル内の売店はあります。湯元スキー場奥に白根山登山口あります。

  • トラウトフィッシングと温泉が楽しめる奥日光の湯の湖。いろは坂を上り戦場ヶ原を抜けると辿り着けます。 湯の湖の周りもハイキングコースになっています

  • 奥日光に佇む大きな湖。北東にある三岳(1945m)の噴火によりできた堰止湖であると言われています。この湖の北側には日光湯元温泉が立ち並び、奥日光の山々から流れてきた源流や湯本温泉で湧き出た湯がこの湖に流れこみ、南側にある湯滝から流出して戦場ヶ原・竜頭の滝を経て中禅寺湖に至る。お湯が流れ込んでいるものの、冬はとても寒くなるので湖面が凍結することもあります。夏は釣りやボートなどのレジャーで観光客で溢れかえります。
