Lake Hibara

The rock slides caused by the steam eruption of Mt. Bandai in 1888 blocked countless rivers, and lead to the creation of over 300 lakes and ponds spread throughout the area. Lake Hibara is the largest of these lakes, and with a length of 10km running along the ravine of the Hibara River, and a shoreline of 37km, it is the largest lake created by natural dams caused by a volcano eruption in Japan. Lake Hibara is now the focal point of tourism in the Urabandai region, and from sightseeing trails to Japanese pond smelt fishing in the winter, there are countless ways for visitors to refresh and invigorate themselves in nature. Guides are also available with a reservation.
