Situated at Biei of Hokkaido, the Blue Pond is a must visit place for photos enthusiasts and it is also a famous sightseeing place in Hokkaido. The water on the pond is Tiffany blue in color and you will be able to see the different reflections of the plants and the sky on the water surface, resulting in an excellent scene. The water from the nearby Shirahige Waterfall contains aluminium hydroxide, and when those water are mixed with those at the Blue Pond, with the effects of the sunlight, the water there becomes blue in color, and therefore, it is called the Blue Pond.
