This is the lake that feeds one of the famous waterfalls in Nikko. It is nicely nestled between the mountains. There is a hiking trail all around it. Wonderful>

The lake was partially frozen when we went in early March. Most of the places were closed up at the late and it was hard to find a place open for a coffee. Most of the paths were frozen and slippy. It is obviously better...More

This is a beautiful stop while driving through this area's magnificent scenery. There is a lakeside track which allows beautiful views of the lake through lovely forest. We visited in autumn and although the real colour had not travelled as far south as Nikko yet...More

Yunoko Lake is near to Yudaki Waterfall. From this small lake, you can stroll along the lakeside pathway to other spots in the region. The lake has quiet environment and not much to be seen here.

We started our hike here. Lake has an always sulfur smell from hot springs. The fish, likely carp, hang by the shoe line sunning themselves. Very pretty setting. More like a large pond then a lake. People were renting small boats and fishing.

Nice little lake feeding into the Yudaki Falls. Many fly fisherman come here and there are boats to rent to go have some fun. Easy to hike...about a hour in a relaxing pace.

It takes a lot of effort to go there, not a simple walk. The place is remote, you should drive on the left-side traffic or go by bus you have to find out from where and when. Not worth the fuss. Just a nice lake.

Take the bus to Yumoto. You can walk around this charming lake to the Yudaki falls. It’s easy with kids!
