Jun.

This is the only natural lake in the Daisetsuzan National Park. It has a depth of 100 meters and is located at an altitude of 810 meters above sea level - the highest point of Hokkaido Prefecture. Lake Shikaribetsu also claims to be the lake with the clearest, transparent water in the whole of Japan. Lots of visitors come here every year from late January to late March to see the "Kotan" ("Village" in Ainu aboriginal language) made only with ice and snow. Mt. Tembo commonly referred to as "Mt. Lips", is a symbol of the area and is located to the east of the lake.
