Most of Lake Akan's cruise boats begin to operate in late April or early May. These special cruises start one week earlier, breaking the laketop ice as they go. Lake Akan is the only place in Japan where you can enjoy boat cruising atop an ice-covered lake. The magnificent scenery of Lake Akan is the perfect backdrop for this one-of-a-kind chance to push back the icy grip of winter.
