Lake Mashu & Foot Bath Experience

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $336.63 NZD / Adult
Discover the eastern side of Hokkaido, visiting Lake Mashu, Mt. Iou, and the foot baths at Kawayu Onsen. Begin your adventure with a journey to Lake Mashu, a crater lake, celebrated as one of the clearest lakes in the world. The water here is as blue as lapis. See for yourself why the Ainu indigenous people revered this as place as the “lake of the gods.” Then, make your way to Mt. Iou, Sulfur Mountain, an active volcano near Kawayu Onsen. Trails take you past steaming and smoking hot vents. Vendors often sell eggs cooked by the natural heat of the mountain. After your hike, sit down to a delicious Japanese-style lunch, followed by a visit to the Kawayu Onsen, a hot springs resort. The natural spring water has a high sulfuric hydrogen content, which has natural antibacterial properties. Soak your feet in the naturally-healing water.
  • Visit Lake Mashu, one of the world’s most translucent lakes.
  • Enjoy a traditional Japanese lunch near Mt. Iou, “Sulfur Mountain” where vendors sell cooked eggs near the volcano’s hot vents.
