[Kaminoyama Onsen and Zao] Okama Crater

A 60-minute drive from the Kaminoyama city center. Go see Okama Crater, the symbol of Zao!

Okama, the symbol of Zao, is a mysterious crater lake with a beautiful emerald green color. You can go to see it by taking the “Green Echo” free shuttle bus from the Kaminoyama city center, getting off at the last stop named “Katta Chushajo” (Katta parking lot), and then taking the “Katta Lift.”
