  • Point

    During winter, the frozen lake becomes the good place to ice fishing for wakasagi (Japanese smelt) and ice skating. The lake, however, is not fit to bathe as the locals warn that the lake bed is covered with tall algae and aquatic plants that might tangle into feet when you swim. Even locals never dive into the water even during summer.
