This is one stop of our 2016 Autumn leaf-viewing Trip. Lake Towada 十和田湖was indeed serene and peaceful. We were very impressed by the various colors, shapes, and sizes of autumn maple leaves and placid lake water.

A scenic drive from Hirosaki will take you to this beautiful lake. You could also walk accross the river and admire a colourful natural forest. There are also beautiful waterfalls and the walking trail is good too.

Very nice colors. Best colors on the approach road to oirase stream. Bit on colder side but lucky to have sun out while we did oirase stream walk. Got the best vegetarian food you can ask for at the end walk at north village.
