Shobugahama is located in Nikko National Park, at the foot of Mt. Nantai, on the shore of Lake Chuzenji, surrounded by greenery and the murmuring lake, making it a perfect place for a relaxing camping life.

Being as a base for mountain climbing / trekking in Oku-Nikko, canoeing and fishing in Lake Chuzenji, Shogahama can also be used for sightseeing in the city, including visiting the World Heritage sites.

About Kotokunuma

Kotokunuma Pond is a small swamp with a circumference of around 300 metres and a depth of about 1 metre, located at the upstream of Sakasagawa River. Since it is surrounded by many large Malus sieboldii trees, you can enjoy their beautiful white flowers in mid-June. Nearby is the Kotoku Farm, where you can taste rich milk and ice cream while watching scenery of cows and horses grazing.
