Akan National Park is on the island of Hokkaido, which was formed, with it's dramatic lakes, by volcanic activity. The park consists of three different lakes, Lake Akan, Lake Masshu, and Lake Kussharo. Each lake offers visitors a different experience. Lake Akan is famous for the large balls of algae called ‘marimo’ that can reach the size of soccer balls. Lake Masshu is thought of as one of Japans most beautiful lakes and Lake Kussharo is Akan National Park’s largest lake. The picturesque park also boasts hot springs and resorts.
