Peaceful and lovely natural environment.
Sep 2019
One of the best place to reflect on life's blessing due to the tranquil environment. If you are into photography, the lake's so placid that you can find many chance to take "mirror" shots of the surroundings using the placid lake surfaces.

Both lakes are very attractive
May 2019 • Couples
The two lakes are very attractive and present a pleasant, calming feeling brought on by the sheer natural beauty around, not forgetting the silent threat of Mt Kamagetake

Top 3 things to do
Feb 2019 • Solo
My top 3 activities that you should definitely do if you travel here during the winter period ( Nov ~ March ).
** snow mobiling ( you have the options to ride by yourself, 2 people or groups using a sledge attach to the snow mobile ).

** ワカサギ釣り ( during Nov ~ March wakasagi fishing )! This kind of activity involves placing a fishing rod ( with bait ) and place it through a hole drilled into the frozen lake. This is a really great bonding experience for couples and family plus, a good way to experience patience ! P.S the only edible fish ( wakasagi ) can be used later on to make tempura in the store ! If it’s your first time doing this, you will have an instructor guide you.

** Walking around the islands dotted around the lake that are connect by bridges. Best place to experience breath taking landscape such a the Mt. Komagatake . Perfect place for photographers and bloggers !

Lake with scenic views
Oct 2018 • Couples
Onuma Lake is very large with several walking trails. You can take a boat ride instead if you have no time. Many local people will have their packed lunch on the way along their planned routes around the lake. It is really an enjoyable exercise with scenic views around. Recommended.

A great natural park, plenty of walking trails and boat rides on the lake
Oct 2018 • Friends
For person connected to nature this is a great place, not over exploited like many. You can casually walk around the lake and enjoy solitude and nature.

There are boar rides available to cruise around the lake and view the many islands.

There is an excellent view available of an extinct volcano which occured in recent times.

Row boats etc are availble for hire. Enjoy a picnic lunch.

A picturesque park with scenic walking trails-highly recommended day trip from Hakodate
Sep 2017 • Couples
Onuma Quasi National Park is the most frequently visited scenic parks outside of Hakodate and the first quasi national park in Hokkaido. A local JR line with fare of 540 yens one way from JR Hakodate to JR Onumakoen takes approx. 40 min. It is also a stop-over station served by JR’s Limited Express Super Hokuto to and from Sapporo. There are lockers available inside of the station if you choose to visit it on your way to Sapporo or Hakodate.
The dormant volcano mountain Komagatake with its distinctive peak takes the center stage in this landscaped park. It comes to the visitors’ views from many directions when strolling around the picturesque lakes, isles, and bridges. The best time of the day to visit is in the mid afternoon when sun is at the perfect position shining from the west towards the face of Komagatake Mountain and on the lake’s surface reflecting the symmetrical images of the surrounding objects. Visitors have several choices of walking routes depends on the time available. The seven islands hoping trail “Shimameguri-no-Michi” is the shortest route. Leisure strolls on this route take approx. 2 hours following seven sequentially numbered posts. At the Lake Onuma there are several tiny islands dotted around the peninsula. Islands are connected by steel or stone bridges of various shapes, each has its name and the year was built. The lake front area on Oshima Island gives visitors the best views of Komagatake Mountain with its iconic pointy peak. The walking trails are fairly easy to take but not all are wheelchair accessible. The best seasons to visit the park are summer when vibrant flowers are in full blossom and autumn when foliages show off their fire red and warm orange colors. Bike rentals and lake cruising boats are available during the tourist season. To get to Onumakoen from Hakodate, take JR Hakodate Line local trains for 540 yens one way. Be sure to check the return train schedules if you take the day trip since there aren’t many local trains available for this route; you may have to pay the higher fares for more frequent Limited Express trains to get back to Hakodate.

Don't miss the volcano
Sep 2017 • Couples
This is a tranquil and beautiful place to visit. On the day we were there, we practically had the area to ourselves. We took a short boat ride around the lake. The ride was narrated in English. There are several interesting bridges connecting bits of land scattered throughout the lake. In the background can be seen the remains of a huge but dormant volcano.

Sightseeing boats, paddling and walking trails along the lake
Aug 2017 • Couples
There are lots of things to do on and around Onuma Lake and it's a real shame that it was grey and rainy when we came here. We first went on one of the sightseeing boats to go around the lake, but didn't find it that exciting as they were announcing everything in Japanese only. Afterwards we went on a walking trail that leads you through and around the lake over various bridges and past small islands with great photo opportunities. If the weather would have been nicer we would have spent much more time here renting a boat to go paddling. This is a great place to come to with your family.

Seriously, how can a lake be so breakthtakingly beautiful?
Dec 2016 • Family
Great for photo-taking, throwing and making snowballs, snowman and having a good family fun time. Not sure how it looks during summer or other seasons, but winter was truly scenic and soothing for the soul.

Breathtaking Views at Onuma Koen
Dec 2016 • Couples
Took a day trip from Hakodate to Onuma koen. Journey took approx. 30min via the JR train and we approached the tourist information centre upon arrival for more info. The centre guide shared with us the 2 possible routes which we could visit and we were soon off to the lakes which was about a 15min walk away from the JR station. The first lake which we strolled along was amazing as there were several mini islands connected by bridges of different architecture and we witnessed the sight of the lake frozen during the winter season. We stopped along the way for a meal at the a restaurant which served
