Towada Lake is a picturesque lake in the Tohoku region, between Aomori and Akita. The lake was formed over 2000 years ago as a result of frequent volcanic activity that created the crater that now makes up Towada Lake. It is the largest crater lake on the Japanese main island of Honshu. As part of the Towada Hachimantai National Park, Towada Lake is one of the most popular attractions in the area due to its proximity to scenic spots such as the Oirase Stream and Mount Hakkoda.

The Towada-Hachimantai National Park covers two expansive portions of the mountain ranges of northern Tōhoku. It is an experience compounded ten-fold when visited in the colder months, as the region boasts the highest snowfall in Japan that carpets the area in pristine powder snow.
