"Kagami-ike" in japanese means mirror pond. Lucky that the wind was not so strong that i captured good reflections that day. fall foliage is abt 50%. Drove from Nagano city in abt 60 min. If via regular bus, need to walk about 20min from bus stop.

Very nice scenery. If it's not windy is like a mirror. We went there in autumn the colours are wonderful.

An absolutely breathtaking, serene, incredible place, especially amidst all the autumn colors. So glad we made the trek to visit!

The pond itself is quite pretty, especially with the mountains in the background. I can see this being quite gorgeous in the fall. The hike there from the Okusha shrine gate is quite nice, and not at all difficult, going through some nice woods.

We didn't get a perfect day ... but the fog made it very mystical. It's easy to picture just how magical it would be on perfect Autumn day ... you'd probably have to beat the crowds, though!
