The journey (by Tobu bus) from Nikko is part of the fun - ascending the 48 bend road is great. But the lake is delightful and provides plenty of walking, eating, drinking, etc opportunities.

We enjoyed kayaking on Lake Chuzenji. The water in Lake Chuzenji was very clean, and I felt like it was cool and very refreshing. Mt. Nantai seen from the lake is very beautiful. When we were resting on the lake beach, I could see small fish and shrimps swimming. After kayaking, we ate Japanese traditional curry at U-corn restaurant at Lake Chuzenji Kanaya Hotel. There is a free boat house nearby there so we can change our wet shoes and shirts. Our family had a great experience.

We just walked around the lake near to the bus station. Also viewed from near the campsite side lake and it was different look and our friend said that the area was banned for swimming because of sudden deep drop down of the lake bottom. He said the lake depth was more than 150 meters! Because of Covid19 closure time, no one was out on the lake by boats etc, it was calm and quiet place.

This lake is awesome in the correct meaning of the word. Large mountains surround it and it gives a calming feel. This looks like it is an area for walking and the vista are stunning. Worth stopping off for a ten minute stroll if you are passing and to be fair this is probably why you are in the area.

I did a winter walk along the shores of Lake Chuzenji. There's a good track around it that takes a few hours to travel. It's quite beautiful in winter.
