About Yunoko Lake, Nikko

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

  • 奥日光の静かな湖。空気が旨い。こじんまりしたサイズで、よい形の湖。四季の移り変わりが楽しめる。 魚釣りが楽しめます。 鱒類豊富、ルアー釣り多い。大物住んでます🎵 温泉、滝、渓流、登山、湿原有り。 山のバカンス、フルコースです。

  • 標高が1500m近くあり、自然が豊かであるため空気が澄んでいます。また、湖の水質はとても透き通っていて見ていてとても癒されます。 その他にも、湯滝はもちろんのこと中禅寺湖、戦場ヶ原、少し進んで群馬県に入ればエメラルドグリーンの菅沼もあり、自然の美しさや雄大さが堪能できると感じました。

  • 真冬の湯ノ湖。ほぼ全面凍結してました。

  • 日光駅辺りより6℃から7℃くらい涼しいそうで、湯ノ湖一周も楽しく歩けました。釣り人もチラホラ居ましたね🎵湯滝までゆっくり足を延ばしても2時間くらいです。

  • 硫黄のにおいがします。冬は金精道路が閉鎖されるのでここまでしか来られません。日光の一番奥になります。
