SpotLake Ikeda

The almost round-shaped caldera lake about 15 kilometers in circumference is located in the southeastern part of Satsuma Peninsula. This 233-meter-deep lake was produced by caving caused by the eruption of Mt. Kaimon. Jumbo eels about two meters long inhabit the lake. Local people call this rather mysterious creature “Issie,” after “Nessie” the Loch Ness monster.
