Sankyo no Ike

A legendary lake nestled at the back of Ozare Valley

Sankyo no Ike is located closed to Komyobutsuji Temple, where a buddhist monk Tanzei Shonin stayed for six years, located at upper stream from the Masaragawa area, 340m up in the mountain. The circumference of the lake surrounded by a thick bunch of trees is 500m. You can walk around the lake along a promenade. A legendary tragic love story of the male dragon, the master of the lake, and a beautiful girl named Osen has been retold from generation to generation. The stream of Ozare River, fed by water of this Sankyo no Ike, becomes Waterfall of Ozare, to flow into the sea around the Masaragawa area in Sotokaifu.
