Lake Tazawa Cruise

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $139 USD / Adult
Set out into the tranquil waters of Lake Tazawa on a cruise though one of Japan's most picturesque landscapes. This crater lake reaches nearly 1,400 feet at its deepest point, and, depending on the day, the water might be a shimmering sapphire or a deep jade. One thing is certain, the views found along its shores are spectacular. Relax as you journey around the entire perimeter of Lake Tazawa. Pass by the golden statue of Tatsuko and hear how she wished and prayed for eternal beauty, but was instead cursed by the gods and transformed into a dragon. Keep watch as she's said to still reside in the depths of Lake Tazawa. You'll cruise beneath towering Mount Komagatake, and pass by the bright red gates of the Goza-no-ishi Shrine. Be sure to have your camera ready. The photo opportunities are endless as you glide atop Lake Tazawa.
