Blue pond, Biei-cho
Categories: Bodies of Water, Nature & Parks
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.

I'm one of the rare people who used public transport to come here. I only had barely 20mins for the place due to the infrequent bus timings (plus the bus was late, I'm not sure if it's a common thing ... read more »
8月の台風で泥水が流れ込み、まっ茶色になった映像をニュースで見ていたため実際にこの目で見るまでは・・・と気になっていました。綺麗な青！ずいぶん早い復活でした。尽力された方がいるのでしょう。人工のものだそうですが、あまりにも偶然、綺麗な池になったのね〜（´-`）日によってまた違った色に見えるんだろうな。せっかくなので、池の奥方の青い川の方へも足をのばしてみることをお勧めします。Until actually seeing with my own eyes had seen in the news images flows into mud by the typhoon in August and became the green color to... and had become concerned about. A beautiful blue! It was fairly early revival. It would have been committed. It is man-made it seems too coincidence, became a beautiful pond-(be-') day by day also would look to a different color. It is recommended that so much trouble, toward the Blue River of ponds to pegli.show original
「青い池」とは？透き通た色では無い。青＝グリーン色に近い 白っぽいという人もいる。駐車場はせまく、人込みが絶えず見学コースも湖側が行く人、その上の道路は帰る人と歩きながら見るための交通整理は出来ているが、摩周湖のような透き通った色ではなく白濁色風の青色が不思議な色で見学するのも良い。And "blue pond"? Crystal is not in full color. Close to the blue-green color that white people have. Nice to visit in the parking lot, walked back and watch traffic is made on roads, people crowd goes constantly facing the Lake tours, Lake Mashu crystal clear color, not a strange white color like blue color.show original
It's a beautiful place, but if you're on a short trip, it might not be worth the long trip from Sapporo. The pond is not huge and, aside from seeing the pond with the beautiful blue water, there's not much else to see.
Beauty in it's finest
Amazing view. Must see while in Biei
nice view, colour of water may vary from blue to green depending on weather.
Very beautiful place and can be easily accessed.
