Can you believe that the surface of this lake freezes up in winter and so-called "Ice Hotel" emerges on the lake ? It is so cool and amazing to soak your body in the hot spring bath on the frozen lake albeit it is so cold outside the hotel.
Due to the wind from the top of mountains, the reflection on the lake was not clear and the whole lips could not be seen on that day.
A well-established hotel "Fukuhara"run by an entrepreneur who also run many supermarkets in Hokkaido. This hotel has "Minerva Museum" in house. There is another hotel "Fuusui"on the lakeside. I used to stay in Fukuhara but I do not know the inside of the hotel "Fuusui"
