Create an itinerary including Lake Tazawa
Enjoy the natural beauty of Lake Tazawa, located in the center of Akita Prefecture. Japan's deepest lake at 423 m (1,388 ft), it features a circular shape that scientists believe to be the result of either volcanic activity or meteor impact. An all-gold statue of a woman named Tatsuko stands on the western shore: legend says she was cursed by being transformed into a dragon, and would later drown in the waters here. Bring a camera to capture the constantly changing color of the water, from indigo blue to turquoise green. Treat yourself to a visit to one of many hot spring spas operating in the surrounding hills.
