Enjoy the serene atmosphere of Lake Kinrin, a shallow, clear lake fed by a couple of rivers and boasting two hot springs. The lake, named after the golden scales of fish reflecting the sunlight, attracts visitors for its notable phenomenon of mist evaporating from the surface, most apparent in winter and fall. Take a relaxing stroll along the lakeside boardwalk, or have a picnic and take in the peaceful atmosphere and lush green setting. PutLake Kinrin into our Yufu trip maker site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

I was expecting 10 times bigger, just got wrong impression when I heard " lake ". I went early, tried to beat the crowd. Less than 20 minutes to circle around with taking photo. more »

Beautiful place, great shops with awesome Japanese products. A lot of tourists but if you are in Kyushu, you had to make a stop there. You gonna appreciate the view, guarantee!
