ガイドさんのおすすめポイント!

Lake Koyama is the largest pond in Japan, with a spectacular landscape of five islets of different sizes floating on the water. Aoshima, the largest islet, is maintained as a nature park, where you can enjoy the beautiful landscape in each season. You can enjoy the blossoms of 350 cherry trees in spring, while the autumnal leaves are beautiful in autumn. A trip on a excursion ship with a kataribe (guide) is very much recommended. Lake Koyama viewed from the ship floating on the water shows you a different side to its charms. You can see a unique landscape you cannot find anywhere else, such as a landscape featuring ishigama, artificial reefs used in the traditional Ishigama fishing method.
