Kayaking Experience On Lake Sohara

Enjoy a tranquil kayaking tour on Lake Sohara. Set in a sunken forest in the Urabandai area of Bandai-Asahi National Park, this is a magically peaceful lake without any motorized boats to disturb the calm.

A kayak tour is the perfect way to experience Lake Sohara, a mountain oasis hidden away in the only sunken forest in the area. Experience perfect tranquility as you glide across the lake, absent of any powerboats or water gates, leaving you alone amidst the unspoiled nature.

In its peace and tranquility, you can enjoy a jungle-cruise-like experience in the sunken forest zone of the lake. The stillness of the waters and the vibrancy of the surroundings captivate all visitors, removing you from the mundane world.

Formed by the eruption of Mt. Bandai in 1888, Lake Sohara is the fourth-largest lake in the Urabandai area. Protected by a ban on motorboats, these quiet (and nutrient-rich) waters attract flocks of wild birds as well as nature-loving humans, adding to the atmosphere of a highland oasis.
