Visit Mikata Five Lakes

The five lakes, also known as pentachromatic lakes have different depths and salinities, and are home to a variety of fish, from saltwater fish to freshwater fish, and are also valuable habitats for water birds. In February 2019, traditional fishing methods corresponding to the characteristics of each of the five lakes, such as the "trawl net fishing" of Mikata Lake, were recognized as Japan's agricultural heritage for the first time in the prefecture. Furthermore, in May 2019, the superb view of Mikata Five Lakes, which can be seen while entering the "Heavenly Footbath" at Rainbow Line Mountain Peak Park, was awarded with the "Cool Japan Award 2019".
