EHAB Outdoor Field Lakeside Wakoto

The Wakoto peninsula is located on the south shore of Lake Kussharo, and juts out into the lake. There are two campgrounds, and one located by the lake is EHAB Outdoor Field Lakeside Wakoto. The location of this campground is, without a doubt, the best! Overlooking the expansive lake, you can pitch your tent right on the edge of the water. In summer, it is crowded with regular campers and locals, some of whom stay longer to enjoy canoeing and fishing. Unallocated tent sites are available on the sandy beach and grass. There are simple log cabin-style bungalows that are popular with families. A free outdoor hot spring located about 100 meters from the campground is open for everyone but please note that it is for mixed-gender bathing.


This is a quiet campground surrounded by the forest. It is very popular as the facilities are quite new and day-camping is also available. Both the allocated and unallocated tent sites are spacious and comfortable. Next to the campground is the Wakoto Field House, which serves as a reception desk for the campground and provides easy-to-understand displays of the surrounding nature, flora and fauna. It is highly recommended to get information here and then go for a walk around the peninsula (2.4 km loop).

Hotels, Japanese Inns (Ryokan) and other accommodations

There are various types of lodging facilities including hotels, Japanese inns, and guest houses along the MKT. Because of the volcanic activity in this area, hot springs have been gushing out since ancient times. Mt. Io (Atosanupuri), an active volcano, heats the groundwater and made it possible to open the Kawayu Onsen resort in 1904, where hikers can relax and get rid of fatigue by soaking in the medicinal waters of the spring.
