This Ship Looks Like a Swan

Some people call Lake Yamanaka “Swan Lake.” This beautiful lake within sight of Mount Fuji in Japan is the home of many birds highly sought by birdwatchers, especially whooping swans. City dwellers in search of nature come here and ride on swan-shaped paddle boats or take the enormous swan-shaped excursion ship across. Or, if you’re a bit more daring, you can take an amphibious bus into the water. You can read more about the lake and its amenities at Atlas Obscura.
