Haruna Lake and Ikaho

Filed under: — Andy @ 1:58 am

The next day we went a bit further north to Lake Haruna and Ikaho Onsen. Unfortunately, it was very foggy (and cold) and we did not get to see the beautiful sights of the lake. Still, we took a long stroll around the lake in the fog. Occasionally it would clear up a bit and we could see the many many fishermen that were out trying their luck. We then headed to Ikaho Onsen for some fun and relaxation. Ikaho Onsen is one of Gunma’s famous Onsen areas because of the stairs that go up through the town to the onsen. On both sides of the stairs are old fashioned shops, ryokans, and game arcades.

This was the view of the lake most of the time.

At Ikaho!

Eating manjyu at an old fashioned sweets shop.

I got some practice in at the archery range.

Japanese style shooting range.

Ninja star throwing.

Time to relax at the onsen.

On the train back we ate the famous Takasaki Daruma Bento.


  1. How do you get from Shinkansen stop at Takasaki or Gunma to Lake Haruna?

  3. Takasaki is a city in Gunma prefecture. You can take another train and a bus to the lake.
