Lake Ogawara is surrounded by Misawa City, Tohoku Town, and Rokkasho Village. The lake is called a "Treasure Lake" in the local area because of its plentiful catch of fish. Lake Ogawara is known for catching the highest amount of Icefish and Pond Smelt in all Japan. It is the third highest in Shijimi Clams. The lake is covered by an ice shield in the winter and is crowded as a Pond Smelt fishing spot. The whole circumference is approximately 60km. There is comparatively no traffic and the pieceful view continues.
