The water is tael / blue-green in colour and it's very beautiful. But there're too many people in late afternoon and you can't stop to take a photo without being pushed or impatiently stared at... Again, it's one of those places that are a lot more enjoyable off-peak hours.

It is located on the moutain above Biei town. The place is relatively small though with just 15 min of walking route but still can get a good picture there. If you dont have a car there i would not really recoomend to go even there is an infrequent bus. We went on Saturday and exdperienced a traffic jam as there is not... More

Despite being just a pond without any other attraction or activity to be done over here, the view of deep blue pond is good enough for you to come! Quite a small area but with numerous tourists though.

We must have waited at least 30 mins in the Q, but it was worth seeing the pond, even though the entire walk was over in 10 mins!

It is not easy to come if you don't have car. The place is quite remote. The view is stunning with the blue color of the ponds. It is suggest to come early in the morning. The place is small n will have problem if many visitors.

Not seen anything like this before - so it was quite spectacular even though it was made by accident. There is just an air of serenity and you can never take enough pictures here as every angle just looks so special. No pictures will do it much justice, you'll need to see it in person! We were there end of... More

This place looks stunning, but its quite expensive to visit by bus from Biei (540 yen one way). If you have a car, definitely worth seeing. If not, its not worth the long and expensive bus ride. Depends on your budget though!

This place is simply beautiful. No words or pictures can ever perfectly describe how pretty this place is.

The spot is beautiful. The water is indeed blue. A kind of copper sulphate blue. The bleached trees add to the drama. Quick ride to the place as its quite easy with the mapcode. Easy to find with clear signs. (Japan, ofcourse!!) I strongly recommend this place because it adds to some different experience for people fatigued by lavender and... More

Blue Pond is on the way to Tokachidake Onsen. Easy to drive and there are signs to show the way. A beautiful and quiet place. The water of pond is really clear and blue. We even saw deers on our way to there. Really worth to travel.
