The opening of Lake Akan heralds the coming of spring. The opening ceremony includes a ritual prayer for safety, brass band performance, tape cutting, cruise boat ticket giveaways, and more. One lucky spectator is selected to "open" the lake by dropping a key from a boat, before the cruise boats officially launch. The local foods tasting party is always very popular, featuring dishes such as pond smelt tempura.
