Lake Onuma Is Known as Beauty Spot for Fall Foliage in Hokkaido -Lake Onuma in Nanae-

November 1st, 2017

Lake Onuma with Fall Foliage

Lake Onuma (大沼) is the largest lake in Onuma Quasi National Park, and is known as a beauty spot for fall foliage in Hokkaido, too. A combination of Mt. Komagadake (駒ヶ岳) and small islands with fall foliage floated on the surface of the Lake Onuma is very good. 4 trails, Oshima Trail (大島の路), Forest Trail (森の小径), Island Hopping Trail (島巡りの路) and Sunset Trail (夕日の道), are provided around Park Plaza (公園広場), and I have walked the Oshima Trail and the Island Hopping Trail on foot. By the way, bicycles are prohibited on the trails. The best time to see is from late October to early November. Admission free. A parking lot is chraged.

Oshima Trail

Oshima Trail (大島の路) links Nishi-oshima island (西大島) to Higashi-oshima island (東大島). It takes about 15 minutes to look round on foot, and is easy to look around in the 4 trails. There are Nishi-oshima Bridge (西大島橋), Higashi-oshima Bridge (東大島橋), A Thousand Winds Monument (「千の風になって」モニュメント), a stone tablet inscribed with a haiku of Hana-no-Hon Choshu (花の本聴秋句碑), Tai Koen Fishing Pond (つり堀太公園) and a sightseeing boat pier along the Oshima Trail. A combination of the Mt. Komagadake and a small round rock can be seen only at the Nishi-oshima island, and it is a good place for taking a photo. In addition, vivid red maple is great, too. Tourists using a wheelchair or pushing a baby carriage can enjoy themselves because the Oshima Trail is relatively flat.

Island Hopping Trail

Island Hopping Trail (島巡りの路) links 7 islands. There are Koraku Bridge (後楽橋), Wakasagi Bridge (公魚橋), Wakasagi Island (公魚島), Nagashima Path (長島園路護岸), Ukishima Bridge (浮島橋), Ainu Island (アイヌ島), Hinode Bridge (日の出橋), Vantage Point for Viewing Mt. Komagadake (東宮殿下御展望の地碑), Hakamagoshi Bridge (袴腰橋), Kinpa Bridge (金波橋), Kogetsu Bridge (湖月橋), Shakunage Bridge (石楠花橋), Shakunage Island (石楠花島) and Yatsu Bridge (八つ橋) along the Island Hopping Trail. It takes about 60 minutes to look around, and is the longest trail in the 4 trails. Narrow paths and small islands are like a miniature garden, and those sceneries will make a good picture. A distant view of Mt. Komagadake and each bridges is good balance, and those sceneries will make a good picture, too. At inland side, beautiful fall foliage is reflected on the surface of the water. By the way, paths are undulating, so it would be better to wear shoes and clothes that are easy to walk in.
