Where is Lake Kussharo located? Is it worth visiting?
Lake Kussharo-ko is located in Akan National Park in Hokkaido. A little smaller than Lake Saroma, Lake Kussharo is the second largest lake in Hokkaido. A great place for camping, onsen bathing, fishing, speed boating, windsurfing and other water activities, Lake Kussharo is a top choice as vacation destination. The lake freezes every winter but it is partially melted by the heat. There are about 400-500 swans rest in the area, thus making a popular tourist spot. The temperature fluctuates greatly from day to night. Sometime you may encounter sea of clouds in summer. Yet, the best time to visit is winter, during which you can see rime ice as well as participate in various winter activities.
