Lake Saroma Tsuruga Resort

Lake Saroma, which faces the Sea of Okhotsk and its winter sea ice, is the largest lake in Hokkaido-the land of forests and lakes. Fondly known by locals as Saroman Blue, the beautiful cobalt waters of Lake Saroma are complemented perfectly at dusk by arguably Japan’s best sunsets, which are tinted in hues of orange. Lake Saroma Tsuruga Resort is a lakeside resort perfectly situated amidst magnificent natural beauty where guests can escape from time. The resort is also located nearby the Wakka Wildflower Garden, which is Japan’s largest seashore grassland and designated by the Government of Hokkaido as a cultural heritage site, and Tokoro Ruins, which represents the largest ruins of Okhotsk culture. Join us to discover the picture perfect ocean and wetland views, cultural experiences and lush natural surroundings in what has been referred to as “perhaps the best place on earth when the Okhotsk people once lived here” by prominent Japanese historical author Ryotaro Shiba.
