With its beautifully clear lake, Mikurigake is a symbol of Murodo

  • One of Murodo’s beautiful views

This landscape of a volcanic lake located at an altitude of 2,405m is typical of Murodo. Covered in snow until June, its beautiful deep blue water reflects Mount Tateyama between July and October. This is a magnificent sight that attracts a never-ending stream of tourists. Covering 30,000 square metres and with a circumference of 631m, this is the largest lake in Murodo. The lakeside creeping pines are home to thunderbirds, which you may be lucky enough to see. There is also a rich variety of Tateyama plant life around the lake, making it the ideal place for a nice relaxing walk.
