We started our hike here. Lake has an always sulfur smell from hot springs. The fish, likely carp, hang by the shoe line sunning themselves. Very pretty setting. More like a large pond then a lake. People were renting small boats and fishing.

Nice little lake feeding into the Yudaki Falls. Many fly fisherman come here and there are boats to rent to go have some fun. Easy to hike...about a hour in a relaxing pace.

Rode around lake early in am. Just my Harley and fishermen. Many beautiful photo spots and views to take in

It takes a lot of effort to go there, not a simple walk. The place is remote, you should drive on the left-side traffic or go by bus you have to find out from where and when. Not worth the fuss. Just a nice lake.

Take the bus to Yumoto. You can walk around this charming lake to the Yudaki falls. It’s easy with kids!

I like the early morning in the lake. This lake has a beautiful view of the reflections of mountains and trees. If you stay a hotel around the lake, you should wake up early and take a walk around the lake.

The place is mesmerizing, not too many tourists. We could stay there for hours. Would highly recommend to visit.

I walked around it in less than an hour. Beauty from every angle. From the hot springs where I started all the way. I took so many pictures of this beauty.
