Water Body Nature / Park
A photogenic man-made pond set in lush greenery, Kumobaike 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. Catch a bus seven minutes from Karuizawa station and get off at Roppontsuji bus stop to reach the pond. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Kumobaike and many more Karuizawa-machi attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Karuizawa-machi tour planner.
