Around 2000 years ago, volcanic activities gave birth to Lake Towada, a double caldera at 400 m (1312 feet) above sea level. Lake Towada’s beauty can be appreciated all year around with fresh green leaves in spring and mystical atmosphere in the winter. However, the magnificent autumn foliage is said to be one of the most beautiful sights in Japan. The peak season for the new, fresh leaves is May through June; the fall leaves begin coloring in the beginning of October, reaching its peak from mid to the end of October.

The Otome no Zo Statue

The Otome no Zo Statue was crafted in 1953 in celebration of the 15th anniversary of the Lake Towada Park’s designation as a National Park. The bronze statue is the last piece of art by the sculptor and poet Kotaro Takamura, who took a year to finish this piece. The sculpture is 2.1 meters high (6.8 feet), and depicts two nude women facing each other holding their left hands. The model for the sculpture is Kotaro’s wife, Chieko. They used kuromikage stone from Fukushima, Chieko’s birthplace, for the foundation of the statue.
