Japan Trip - Lake Tazawa

Half an hour by train from Morioka is Lake Tazawa, the deepest lake in Japan. It's ringed by mountains, making it great for photography.

We walked along a small segment of the lake, looking at fuji flowers (wisteria) and birds before having the local specialty, kiritampo nabe (grilled pounded rice in a vegetable hotpot), for lunch. We also tried misotampo (pounded rice, grilled over an open flame and smeared with miso paste).
