Lake Chuzenji Lake Chuzenji Lake Chuzenji

This scenic lake was formed by the eruption of the Mt. Nantaisan volcano roughly 20,000 years ago, and at an altitude of 1,269m it is one of the highest lakes in Japan. Hiking is a popular activity, as well as boat cruises around the lake. The change of seasons is spectacular here, with sakura in the spring, azaleas in early summer, and striking red autumn leaves. Along the lake are many European style villas, owned by embassies and used as summer residences.
