Lake Ogawara Activity(Lake Ogawara Kayak Lab)

Kayaking at Lake Ogawara!

Lake Ogawara is a shallow lake perfect for beginners to learn kayaking. You can see different scenery being on the surface of the lake. Kayaking is a popular activity that can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of age. 

Once you've tried kayaking, it's time to go on an adventure a little farther afield! If you join a kayaking tour, you can go to Lake Anenuma, which is connected to Lake Ogawara via a waterway. It is an exciting and adventurous experience for kayakers.

From June to September, kayaking in Odanai-numa is also recommended so you may see lotus flowers in full bloom. 

An additional recommendation is to go kayaking at sunset for a special time. 

In winter, you may enjoy walking on the ice. Lake Ogawara is a lake that can be enjoyed all year round.

 In addition to kayaking, there are also SUP experiences (standup paddleboarding) available, and outdoor cooking and BBQ grill rentals. After you've enjoyed activities, have some delicious food!
