There are all of nature. Mountain is a good shape. Lake is wide where you can take a walk and row a boat. Around lake are a lot of restaurants. You can eat a nice foods. Enjoy your life in Lake Haruna.

After the shrine if you have time take a bus to the lake. It’s only 10 min. The lakes spectacular. Well worth a look. The bus you get back on will take you directly to main train station.

The lake itself is pleasant enough, and the conical Haruna-San overlooking it is impressive, but the whole place feels like it is stuck in the 1970s. The souvenir shops, cafes and restaurants all need a lick of paint and a good clean. Rather than hanging...More

It's a nice relaxing place for a stroll if the weather is nice. But as far as picturesque lakes go, this is nowhere near as nice as lake Chuzenji in Nikko. But... Haruna is a lot easier to access and the weather around Mt Haruna...More

We drove up to the lake on a misty day, but the mist added to a special atmosphere over the lake. Activities like renting peddling boats or a motorboat are available. We enjoyed the drive to the lake, but you have to navigate some very...More

The best experience is hiking in Mount Haruna. You can try fried Wakasagi fish for the lunch. There is a ropeway. But I strongly recommend the hiking if you are strong. If you wish you can try a horse ride, but I did not try....More

This was a highlight of one of our many trips to Japan. There was a lot of snow, and the lake was partially frozen. Sun was out, and although it was still cold, the whole area was stunningly beautiful. We stayed for hours, just wondering...More

A beautiful spot made famous by anime & manga. It is worth a stop and a stroll, but definitely do not forget the little fried lake fish (see photo) which are a local delicacy. This volcanic lake is surrounded by lush forest-covered mountains. You can...More
