Lake Shikotsu is the fresh water lake in Chitose-shi, Hokkaido. A crater lake where I belong to the Shikotsu-Toya National Park..
A lake has a shape that major axis 13km and minor axis 5km are long in east and west mostly. The entourage are biggest about 40km, the depth is about 360m. It’s also learned about as Japan most northern non-freezing lake. Highly, the clarity has brilliant results in Japanese best by the water quality.
Beautiful nature such as the mountains by which the height crosses 1,000m and a natural deep forest is left around Shikotsu-ko Lake. There is a hot spring of 3, Shikotsuko-onsen, Marukoma-onsen and Ito-onsen. It’s possible to enjoy boat play, camp, scuba diving and a canoe.
