4.1/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web
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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
