It's so nice rolling a boat on the lake. You could enjoy the calm, the beauty of nature,... Getting here from Nikko station will need more than 1hour. You will give the first WOW when the bus passing Lake Chuzenji and it's really amazing have a lunch nearby the lake and rolling a boat on it. It's 1500 Yen for... More

Yunoko is a an untouched, picturesque lake. I truly enjoyed our time staying at one of the hotels that dotted the area, and taking leisurely strolls around the lake. Not busy nor commercialized, this lake and it's area truly allowed me to unwind in it's serene beauty.

The small resort town is really just a group of hotels. Very quiet. There are good hiking trails around the lake. Follow the trail around the far side of the lake to Yutaki Falls and then continue the Senjogahara Plateau to Ryuzu Falls. Takes about 3 hours plus stops. Then catch the bus to wherever.

Lake Yunoko is further up the Nihon Romantic Hwy from Lake Chuzenji but is worth the trip. We hired a car for the day to drive up here - you can catch the bus, but it takes MUCH longer. Driving is preferable. Also if you plan on visiting leave Nikko early, as the highway clogs up with traffic later in... More

It's very nice and tranquil setting. good walking path around it and leading to the waterfall at the edge of the lake. Plenty of hot spring bath around the lake too if you want to take a dip. The peaks dotted the horizon while you walk give majestic views. Very relaxing, Good change from the cultural immersion of the shrines... More

Travelled to Yumoto Onsen and Yunoko Lake is located here. Didn't expect this place to be so quiet as I don't see many people walking around the street, not sure if because it was too cold in the winter season or because they are dipping inside the hotspring. The view of the lake was spectacular in winter, having half of... More

Along with many artists, you can enjoy the view of this beautiful lake fed by sulphur springs and other artesian wells as well as melting snow. A must see in the winter.
