Lake Haruna Reviews
There are activities you can do at the lake. Paddle a boat or fishing. Or you could sit at a cafe and watch the world go by. Surrounded by mountains and nice cool air, it's a trip not to be missed. more »
We stopped briefly at Mt Haruna between Mt Haruna and Haruna Shrine. It is very pretty and there’s a ‘rope tow’ (ie cable car) up the top. I don’t think it was open the day we drove past. more »
The best place as photo spot during autumn. If you love to take a drive, it’s the best place to take a break. Some local restaurant provides delicious foods and snacks. There are also a very large parking space around. You can also enjoy a horse/horse cart ride.
Beautiful lake. You can enjoy nature here :)
