Tourists will get an opportunity to ride down a lake to view Japan's autumn trees as well as the numerous mini islands that surround it. Though not habitual you'll notice some of them have been styled to include mini homes and bench for your viewing pleasure.

Lake Towada is an amazing crater lake and we were anxious to have a closer look, so we took this boat ride. The boat itself was nothing special; the usual Japanese sightseeing ferry, with a few snacks sold from a concession stand on the lower deck. Although the weather was overcast and didn't let itself to photography, it was interesting... More
