Lake Akan freezes in the winter. There are lots of programs available for on-ice activities that can only be enjoyed during the winter. You can also enjoy activities together with your kids. Natural wakasagi fishing is enjoyed by opening a hole in the frozen lake with a drill. Visitors can get their freshly caught wakasagi turned into tempura right then and there. What’s more, on top of the ice visitors can also enjoy snowmobiles, banana boat rides, four-wheel buggies, cross-country skiing and ice skating. Please dress warmly and enjoy the ice atop Lake Akan to your heart’s content; it can only be enjoyed during the coldest period of the winter.
