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.

  • In mid-April, there is still less than the sight of the Lake do not melt, ice melt and see Green did not rust when the appearance of overlap surrounding where there is a large number of birch everywhere will feel is light-headedness

  • There is a fantastic atmosphere in the photo looked like. Reflections on the dead tree in the swamp like a cloudy sky only spot. And crowded with Chinese tourists, with many pictures. After editing even to wonder. Often disappointed after messing with contrast photos of recent travel destinations and actually go. This tourist destination is one of them.

  • I went during the day. It was fantastic but it takes 薄moya in the morning?, very large parking lot. Inspirational long going to the blue Pond Road, long. It is Hokkaido sightseeing

  • Perhaps we were spoilt. The blue water in the northern part of Honshu is natural, crystal clear and stunning. The water of the blue pond is concreted in by dam walls, and was cloudy making the water closer to torquoise then blue. It may have been caused by heavy rain but we were far from impressed by this attraction. Do yourself a favour and get to the national park just south of Aomori!
  • When I visit the pond, the weather is cloudy. I believe if the weather is good, the colour of the pond will be better. If time is not enough, I don't think it is must visit spot.
  • Nice pond. Not worth going. Nothing much
  • It was late when we arrive. So took some pics of the pond. A piry the pond was not well maintained n appeared dirty...took a few pics n we left
  • Beautiful lake. Worth to take a look
