Onuma Quasi National Park in Hakodate, Japan
Lake Onuma is a quasi-national park surrounded by mountains and lakes. It came about as a result of an eruption that took place 30,000 years ago.
A 40-minute drive from Hakodate, the lake is surrounded by 126 islets connected by 18 bridges which will allow you to walk across them while sightseeing.
Tourists can choose from four different trails when going around the area. The park offers a variety of activities such as strolling around lakes, biking, and camping. We recommend you get on the pleasure boat, priced at ¥1,100, for a better view of the lake.
Come winter, the lake turns into a snow-covered paradise that’s perfect for winter activities such as skiing, snowmobiling, and sledding.
