This is the heart-shaped lake made famous from the Shiroi Koibito cookie commercials. Surrounded by rich natural forest with a wide variety of life, it is home to the “Pika”, a rabbit-like animal of family Ochotonidae and a survivor of the Ice Age. The voice of the Pika, a high pitched squeak, is a signal that they are nearby!
