Circular Caldera Lake with High Transparency of Lake -Lake Kuttara in Shiraoi-

July 19th, 2017

Lake Kuttara (倶多楽湖) is a circular caldera lake in Shiraoi town. The circumference of the lake is about 8 km. A road leads to the lake only from Noboribetsu, and it is nearby Noboribetsu Onsen (登別温泉). The transparency of the lake is very high because there is not a river at all. After Lake Mashu (摩周湖), the lake water has the second transparency in Japan. Ministry of the Environment reported 2001 Measurement Results of Water Quality in Public Waters (2001年度公共用水域水質測定結果), and the Lake Kuttara won first place in lake and pond section. Because the development is limited, a primeval forest of Hokkaido is still abound relatively. Rest Station "Route350 Lake Cabin" is built on the shore. It is famous for fishing a kokanee. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge.
