Lake Yunoko

Yunoko Lake is a lake that has formed by the eruption of Mt. Mitake. It is about 3 km in circumference. It is surrounded on three sides by mountains, and is somehow shrouded in a mysterious atmosphere. There is a walking path on the lakeshore, and you can make a round of it in about an hour. There are various types of primary forests in the surroundings, and you can see colorful autumnal leaves in the fall. It is also a spot famous for trout fishing, and is thronged with people during the fishing season from May to September."

From Kinugawa Onsen to Kawaji Onsen, hot springs can also be found throughout the area. There are a wide range of outdoor activities to enjoy as well, such as stand-up paddleboarding in the summer and snowshoeing in the winter.
