Lake Sagami-ko is in the perfect location, only one hour from metropolitan Tokyo. Enjoy camping and walks around the lake.
Lake Sagami-ko is an artificial lake situated in Sagamihara City, in the northwestern part of Kanagawa. The Sagami-gawa River was dammed to make this lake in a perfect location, 60 kilometers from metropolitan Tokyo and 50 kilometers from Yokohama, and just an hour by train from each of these cities. Many people therefore come to this lake to enjoy cruising, boating, and fishing.
Spring time is beautiful with bright green leaves and blue sky reflecting on the lake water, young people's voices ringing out as they enjoy boating and camping in summer, and fall provides a splendid contrast of golden foliage and the lake. Sagami-ko-koen Park on the lakeside has cherry trees lining the street, and visitors can enjoy every season of the year.
Sagami-ko Pleasure Forest on the lakeside is a nature and greenery theme park. Attractions such as the Jumpin' Star and Alps Ferris Wheel, and other facilities such as mountain bike courses, dog parks, and a campground are provided.
