Shidaka-ko (Lake Shidaka)

Lake Shidaka, which belongs to Aso-Kuju national park, is a small lake located 600 meters above sea level and is 2 km around. It offers beautiful scenery all year round including cherry blossoms in the spring and the changing of the leaves in autumn. You can enjoy a picnic by the lake, camping with grills included (located in designated areas) for cooking out, pedal boat rides on the lake, or just feeding the beautiful swans and fish from the banks and dock. It also has a 12km long hiking trail that highlights more of the beautiful natural scenery.
