The view of the lake is nice

The statue itself is not so impressive. But come here anyway, the view of the lake is amazing and it's a very nice and quite walk.

Nice pair of statue by Lake Towada and a stone's throw from Towada Shrine. The statue is actually just next to the lake side beach so it's nice for a picnic of rice balls and green tea (or local Oirase beer).

The draw about Lake Towada is that you are not going to be hit by a whole bunch of commercial attractions. One of the few things to see there is this statue. It is attractive, apparently modeled after the artist's wife.
