“Lovely lake to take a walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

We had a lovely walk from the 'Boat house' bus stop (a few stops past Chuzenji on the way to Yumoto-onsen) back to Chuzenji. About a 5 km walk along the edge of the Lake. Peaceful, easy and relaxing.

“don't go in winter”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

It' s freezing and very quiet. Very lonely feeling and difficult to find good food to eat.
I just hop off to take pictures and couldn't see things because it was snowing hard

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

Each time I visit Lake Chuzenji, I am overwhelmed by the strong wind. Be careful if you where a cap or loshang shawl over the neck.

But despite all the strong wind, I still enjoy the view and red orange maple leave which makes the scenery so memorable!

“Amazing experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

A visit to lake chuzenji fulfilled my objective to see magnificent fall foliage which on board the sightseeing boat and along the winding irohazaka road en route to the lake. this was where we saw the brightest and wide array of fall colors in all of Japan. The onsen experience at Nikko Lakeside Hotel was also an experience to boot. Although, id have to say the the shops here closes at 430~5 pm especially during fall and winter season. But buses are available through 8pm. I dont speak kanji everybody was willing to assist. ARIGATO gozaimas!

“Tranquil lake with a fantastic vista”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

I went there in Jan 2010. Awesome view and lotsa photo-taking opportunity!

One thing good about Lake Chuzenji is that there's nobody to interrupt on your phototaking, a great place to meditate, and to have a small picnic by the waters!
