The sunset at Shinjiko Lake, also called Lake Shinji, is spectacular. The day I went it was a little foggy but that didn't hinder the beauty of the sunset at all. The island Yomegashima can be seen from the shoreline of the lake.

Probably best known for its sunsets, though of course this depends on the weather. I enjoy the spooky view of the mountains in the distance even more, though other people enjoy the morning view of the shijimi clam fishers. Make sure to try out shijimi clam miso soup.
