Akanko Lake Sightseeing Cruise

Beautiful Scenery

Akanko Lake is located in Kushiro City in the eastern area of Hokkaido, and the panoramic view of Mt. Oakan rising on the east bank is a sight to see. There are four islands in the lake, including the Ojima and Kojima islands as well as Yaitai Island and Churui Island, which is home to the Marimo Exhibition Center. The beauty of each season that can be seen at the lake is fascinating for travelers, and the best way to relax and fully content oneself is to take a ride on an Akanko Lake Sightseeing Cruise. After passing through the picturesque scenery of the inlet dubbed "takiguchi," cruise passengers will make their way to the opposite side of the lake. Stepping off the boat and on to Churui Island, visitors can experience marimo moss balls, a special national monument, at the Marimo Exhibition Center. Surprisingly large marimo are visible at times, making it a popular must-see spot. What better way to spend a day than enjoying an 85-minute walk on the water of Akanko Lake?
