Take a scenic upstream walk along Oirase Stream to its source: Lake Towada
The Oirase Stream flows from Lake Towada, running about 14 kilometers from Nenokuchi on the lakeshore, to the hot spring town of Yakeyama. The walk along the mountain stream is gentle, with opportunities to take photographs and relax in the forest surroundings. The inspiring landscape was carved out by the ever-changing flow of water winding through the deep, natural woods. Lake Towada can be reached on foot, by rental bike or via a bus service that runs parallel to the walk.
