Treat your feet to the spectacular sensation of hot sands and volcanic heat under cold water, as you enjoy taking Lake Kussharo Sand Bath. Set on the shore of a caldera lake, the largest in Akan National Park, the black sand underneath the rippling shallows exudes heat, which you can experience by walking on a little wooden plank then digging your feet into the sand. Appreciate the feeling as you admire the surrounding mountain views, and don't forget to bring a small towel with you. With a circumference of 57 km (36 mi), the lake area also provides various other outdoor activities, such as fishing, kayaking, hiking, and cycling. You can also take a dip in a pool near the beach. Lake Kussharo Sand Bath is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.
