Onuma Lake is very large with several walking trails. You can take a boat ride instead if you have no time. Many local people will have their packed lunch on the way along their planned routes around the lake. It is really an enjoyable exercise...More

Great for photo-taking, throwing and making snowballs, snowman and having a good family fun time. Not sure how it looks during summer or other seasons, but winter was truly scenic and soothing for the soul.
