Oct.

Lake Shizenko is a natural lake that formed when a landslide caused by a large earthquake in 1984 blocked off part of Otakigawa River. Although the area is not fully blocked off, it was named a lake because there is barely any water flowing through the blockage. The valley that was blocked off is fully submerged, and has a water depth of 20 meters at its deepest. There is something magical about the tall trees "growing" out of the water in the lake.
