Kumoba Pond, Karuizawa-machi

4.2
A photogenic man-made pond set in lush greenery, Kumoba Pond provides a great spot to relax some 1.5 km (1 mi) from Karuizawa station. Enjoy watching water birds and the changing colors of offshore leaves with a wide variety of flowers artfully arranged around the lake. A well-maintained 20-minute path leads around the pond. Also known as a “swan lake,” the pond now offers home to whole families of ducks. The mirror-like lake surface provides a sense of tranquility, making this a popular spot for locals and tourists.

  • 1周 has been around the pond. Also not very widely, so just take a nice walk. Just nice to walk the dog. Negative ions will be healed in plenty.

  • It is a pleasant taste from Karuizawa fresh air location. Walkway can circle the pond. Foliage season is great is good also the season of the fresh green

  • Autumn must come to the pool to maple! Maple, add the pool! The scenery is very beautiful! It is also very convenient to go to the well. Maple is a good place to be in the suburbs of Tokyo! But the crowds are much too.

  • Scenic. Recommend to walk from Old Mikasa hotel (not main road, follow google shortest route recommendation) and enter through the north side of the pond
  • A must see if you come in Fall. Beautiful colors of Maples and water reflection.
  • quite nice but stay for 5 minutes is enough
  • It was closed for construction.. Disappointed. 😒
  • Beautiful scenery. Just love it.
