To truly appreciate Lake Akan, try a "stroll across the lake surface" on a cruise boat. Available daily from May to November, boats depart about every hour in summer.

After cruising to the "Takiguchi" scenic spot along the bay, boats continue toward Churui Island in the middle of the lake, where they land to visit the Marimo Exhibition and Observation Center to learn about the spherical "marimo" seaweed, a designated special natural monument of Japan.

The trip takes about 85 minutes.
