Lake Akimoto, which extends east and west, is the second largest lake in Urabandai after Lake Hibara. There are lots of attractions around the lake.
The observatory leading from the west entrance is loved by photographers as a spot where the rising sun is very beautiful.
When the sun rises from the opposite side, the shadows of scattered islands create the world of ink wash painting.
Although you can enjoy completely different scenery on the east and west sides, Urabandai is an area where most of its nature is left untouched.
On the north side, an unpaved narrow path stretches along the lake. Every time you turn at a mountain shadow, utterly new scenery appears.
There are few cars and visitors on this unpaved path. However, when you park the car from time to time to go to the lakeside, a spectacular landscape with no man-made structures spreads before you.
You can command an extensive prospect from the Lake Line. Famous Nakatsugawa Valley is located near the center of the lake.
