Yogoko-so Kokuminshuku lodge at the southern tip of the lake. It affords a scenic view of the lake. This is a national pension so prices are affordable. 国民宿舎 余呉湖荘Sadly, after 40 years in business, this pension closed in Sept. 2013 due to aging facilities that were too expensive to repair.

Dining room at Yogoko-so lodge. This is where I took a lunch break. Great place to warm up (especially your feet). 国民宿舎 余呉湖荘Sadly, this pension closed in Sept. 2013 due to aging facilities.

Lunch at Yogoko-so lodge: Eel (unagi) and udon noodles. I think it was 700 yen or so.

Snow clearer
yo053-IMG_4963.jpg
Dead end. Right after the lodge, the road was closed due to snow. But I decided to walk over the snow in order to walk around the entire lake. I knew there were some great shots to be had on the other side of the lake. But it almost froze my feet.

Snow trail only on this side of the lake. It took me a total of 3 hours to walk around the lake, including picture-taking time.
