About this sight

With the surrounding foliage changing colors seasonly, Lake Kinrin is beautiful year around. However, it is most famous for the mysterious mists created in the winter and autumn mornings from the hot and cold water mixing.

History has it, the name derived from a Confucius scholar who spotted a gold-scaled fish.
