But it's still windy and cold as its near to the alps height. The location need time ( a few hours) to travel from Tateyama. So be prepared, to spend some time... More

Beautiful lake by the Murodo stop. You can see images of the mountains on the lake which makes a nice photo shoot. Remember to wear layers and be adequately dressed as it will be cold at Murodo and at the lake.

Mikurigaike is located at 2405m high in Murodou/Tateyama of Toyama prefecture. It is remote place but easily accessible by public transportation. The pond is just 15 minutes walk from bus terminal and the walking pass is well maintained. The contrast of colors such as blue, green, white was so beautiful that I couldn't stop taking many pictures.

A beautiful pond but it wasn't so still for perfect reflections while we were there, would love to have spent more time there especially at a more photogenic hour.

We went on the Alpine Route in June.The Mikurigaike Pond was frozen,the surrounding view was breathtaking.We had a good short walk along the snowy trail round the pond and saw thunder birds perched on snow or rocks for us to take photo:). It was one of our best experiences.
