SpotSengokuhara

Ancient Lake Ashi used to stretch northward covering Sengokuhara completely with water. About 3,000 years ago, Mt. Kami just east of the lake erupted, and its lava flowed to damn up the lake, splitting it in half. The south half, being the upper half, remained as Lake Ashi, while the north half being the downstream end of the lake, drained to become a marshland rich in rare flora- some found nowhere else on earth. The marshland is protected as a natural monument, and you can see all the amazing flora of the area plus others from around the world at Sengokuhara's Botanical Garden of Wetlands. From Togendai, take Hakone Tozan bus to Sengokuhara.
