Impressive! Worth the drive along the country road. A short walk from the car park. Very good esp. when the sunshine with blue sky, the pond reflecting the blue sky.

Quite an enchanted site, clear blue pond in the middle of nowhere, with tree stumps protruding from the surface if the water. Go before 6pm during autumn time to catch the great view.

Very blue color pond...good to go. However it is quite far from Biei town. If you are not driving, it is not easy to get there. Free parking..take about half an hour to talk the whole pond and to the river.

A very beautiful pond with short walk from the parking lot. Many tourists, too many, maybe. But the scenery is awesome. It is one of the wall papers in MacBook/iPhone, by the way.

Visited in mid-August. Driving : Free parking. Mapcode : 349 568 888 In my opinion, Not worth visiting if you don't intend to drive. There's only the blue pond and a river at the back. Recommended duration : 30minutes is sufficient for you to walk to-and-fro and back to the carpark.

GPS did not have this lake, so go past Shirogane information centre and keep going for 2 km. it is on your right.... More

We were suggested by our B&B owner to go at 6am - what a great advise! It was quaint for a nice morning stroll, vs. our friend who went a few hours later, and had to queue for 40 min for a parking lot!
