Went past the lake on my way to the waterfall. I had a small walk to the shore while waiting for the bus trip back to Nikko. The lake is very calm. Not much activity here, but I guess the best thing to do is...More

Weather is good today to go for a short cruise at Lake Chuzenji. Definitely you will enjoy the natural view of the lake, the greens and Mt. Nantai.

I went there in autumn when leaves were changing their colour. My destination was the waterfall but we had to stop here for photo shooting. Good place to visit. Nikko is very popular in autumn and the local road is very small. If you plan...More

Taking the bus through the windy and steep roads to the lake was an experience in itself. We took in the falls (Ryuzu & Kegon), had a wander through the town and around the lake. A lovely afternoon in very pretty surroundings.

Very cold in May with past peak cherry blossoms at the lake side. Very clean public toilets are available.
