Lake Mashu is the clearest lake in Japan and the second only to Lake Baikal in the world. There are rumors about the lake: ”Couples visit Lake Mashu and if they can't see the lake's surface because of fog, their relationship will last longer.” ”If an unmarried person sees Lake Mashu on a clear day, he/she will marry later in his or her life.”
