Blue Pond, Biei-cho

4.1
Rather obviously named after its deep blue color, Blue Pond originally served as part of an erosion control system essential to protecting Biei from a potential Mount Tokachidake eruption. Located next to the hot spring destination Shirogane Onsen, this site provides visitors with a scenic place to walk and take photos. It takes less than ten minutes to walk through the wooded area and arrive at this body of water. Put Blue Pond and other Biei-cho attractions into our Biei-cho trip itinerary planning app , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Beihai Road trip out before the search for a lot of scenic spots, Green pool is Fulanomi Ying the road of one of the attractions, so the row of the itinerary. When we got to this platinum pool, it was a Aleppo. Although it is only a lake, but the color of the lake is very unnatural, not like the General Blue Lake. This blue is like a color, it's pretty. There is a complete sense of nature without any kind of decoration simple natural beauty, the photos are beautiful, the eyes more beautiful, the scenery is unforgettable, it is worth seeing.

  • The bus to the green pool, the time is not easy to arrange, I sit in the United States Ying station take a taxi to the green pool, return to take the bus. There is no commercial pollution on this side of the green pool, so there is no small food kiosk for washing. The view of the green pool, not to go will regret.

  • Missed the pond being blue, as re-froze the day I got there. Illuminated from 17:00 during winter/frozen times to show the blue-ness coming from minerals in the water however the bus-schedule leaves around 16:45 (the next is 18:19) so I missed that too - middle of snow/Gale storm didn't wait there another 1.5 hours.... But area is great looking!
  • It was difficult to get around if you don't drive. May I please reiterate that it is very very difficult to get around. The buses there are slow and they have only 4 rounds of buses that past there every weekday.( Different for weekends) from the time we alight from the bus stop and walk to the blue pond we had only 10mins to take pics and after that we have to return to the bus stop to take the bus back to town. Otherwise you'd have to wait another 2 hours to go back to town. It was sick.... I wished they approved grab or uber in Japan. This way we all get better transport services.. Please enjoy some of the pictures I took there.
  • Might be best to get around the place if you have a car.. the water of the lake doesnt look blue from the entrance point - walk further in to realise that the colour turns deeper into a grey-scaled blue. The view is definitely beautiful! Be careful if you are arriving during winter, the floor will be slippery.
  • simply a gorgeous spot, especially with good weather. impressive. plenty of space for car parking. it was very crowded when the local tour started visiting. One BIG problem : ther is no toilet nearby
  • during winter whole surface of ike was frozen and snow stacked up. but during night, color light reflected by snow makes another beauty.
