Lake Kawamata


Surrounded by mountains, Lake Kawamata is a dammed lake of the Kinugawa River. At the lake’s eastern end is a suspension bridge, offering views of the dam from one side, and Setoaikyo Canyon from the other. The blue of the lake is particularly vivid against the colors of the autumn leaves in October and November.

How to get there:
1 hour 15 minutes from Kinugawa-Onsen Station on a Meotobuchi Onsen-bound bus to Kawamata-ohashi bus stop.
