Photo Tour of Japan | Lake Daisetsu

Feb 21 | Evan | No Comments |

Lake Daisetsu is about 10 minutes from the Sounkyo Onsen area and there are a couple of different places to take photos.  Our group traveling around Japan drove around one part of the lake looking for the angle we liked best and then found parking as close to where we wanted to photograph the lake as possible.  I can’t say it was the safest place as we ended up on the bridge, but I can say that nobody got hurt… although a filter was lost over the edge.


On a clear day you can see the mountains of Daisetsuzan National Park.  Like most landscape opportunities, weather and light play a huge role in the images you can make here.  Like our says in Shiretoko, we had rain for quite some time at Lake Daisetsu but since it was just a 10 minute drive from our hotel in Sounkyo, we were able to come back again for slightly better weather.

More from this photo tour of Japan is coming soon!  Here is the list of the places we visited and photographed in Japan.
