Clear Kayaking Experience at Lake Shikotsu

Take a transparent kayak out onto the azure blue lake.

Just an hour drive away from Sapporo or 40 minutes by car from New Chitose Airport, the fantastic experience of a clear Crystal SUP paddleboard awaits! In winter, gaze through the pristine waters as deep as 30 meters! Depending on the day, you may also see deer and other wild animals along the shores. Come and experience this unique perspective of Lake Shikotsu.

Enjoy the serene feeling of being one with the pure clear waters. When the weather is calm and still, visitors can see a magnificent reflection of the untouched nature on the water’s surface like a mirror.

The clear kayaks with see-through bottoms can also allow you to see fish swimming through the water beneath your feet.

Take a moment to breathe in the clean winter air of Hokkaido, as you view across the lake at Mount Tarumae and the peaceful natural wonders around you.
