Blue Pond, Biei-cho

4.0
Rather obviously named after its deep blue color, Blue Pond originally served as part of an erosion control system essential to protecting Biei from a potential Mount Tokachidake eruption. Located next to the hot spring destination Shirogane Onsen, this site provides visitors with a scenic place to walk and take photos. It takes less than ten minutes to walk through the wooded area and arrive at this body of water. Put Blue Pond and other Biei-cho attractions into our Biei-cho trip itinerary planning app , and watch your holiday take shape.
