Formation

A mesotrophic lake, Lake Hibara was formed as a result of the July 15, 1888 eruption of Mount Bandai. The resulting debris avalanche created a natural dam that then filled with water, submerging Hibara Village (桧原村, Hibara-mura). The remains of Hibara Village still lie at the bottom of the lake.

Recreation

A tourist industry has built up around Lake Hibara, offering hiking trails, pleasure cruises, and campgrounds and other lodging. In the winter, ice fishing is popular.
