Nice little lake

Came here to check it out on Misawa AB side. It's a nice little beach with boat rentals and sandy area with BBQ pits. Great views from the beach.

Had a great time water tubing from the base side. It's kind of weird and creepy to think that this is the place that was used to practice for the Pearl Harbor attack. And we were water tubing. It looked a lot like Maine. It was peaceful, and the water was surprisingly warm.
