Okama Crater - Photo by Kirill Skorobogatov

Okama Crater is a breathtaking caldera lake famous for its changes in colour sitting atop Mt. Zao. The water changes color according to the intensity of daylight. Various shades of deep green and blue are the norm, but if you are lucky, you will be welcomed with a brilliant emerald or turquoise hue. You can scale most of the mountain by car, bus, ropeway, or chairlift and have the choice of a five or 45-minute hike to the top of the mountain. There is a great description of how to get to the crater here -- www.japan.travel/en/spot/1775/. (Kawasaki, Japan)
