Things to do - general

 

Welcome to Lake Towada

Located on the border between Aomori and Akita prefectures and is one of the major attractions of the national park. The third-deepest lake in Japan, the crystal-clear Towada is encircled by steep cliffs and a wooded shoreline famous for its autumn colors.

Oirase Valley, which extends 14 km (8 miles) from the eastern shore of Lake Towada at Nenokuchi, is the highlight of a trip to Lake Towada. The Oirase Stream courses through its length, rushing over boulders and cascading into waterfalls under the leafy branches of Japanese beech and other deciduous trees, making a hike on the trail that flanks the river even more delightful in autumn.
