“One of the principal points of interest near Nikko is beautiful Lake Chuzenji.

“Lake Chuzenji lies at the foot of Nantai-zan, being surrounded on the other sides by comparatively low hills covered with trees to their very summit. The lake, formerly devoid of life, now abounds with excellent salmon, salmon-trout, iwana, and other fish, with which it was stocked between the years 1873 and 1890 by the government. The salmon and salmon-trout can only be taken with rod and line, whilst the iwana, a species of white trout which never came to the fisherman’s bait, are taken in the nets. The height of Lake Chuzenji above the sea is 4,375 ft. Several small temples add to the picturesqueness of its shores.

“Charming at all times, the way from Nikko to Chuzenji is seen at its best late in May or early in June, when the azalea trees, some of which are from 10 ft. to 25 ft. high, display their red, white, and purple blossoms, and the wisteria too are coming into bloom. Another glorious time is late October, on account of the tints of the maple leaves.”
