Kaminoko Pond, Kiyosato-cho

4.6
#1 of 8 in Things to do in Kiyosato-cho
Take in the serene atmosphere of tranquil natural surroundings as you admire the crisp, color-changing water of Kaminoko Pond. Surrounded by lush green vegetation, the pond’s water is often described as mysterious. Inside, you can find fallen trees and branches, which instead of decomposing have simply sunk to the bottom. This is probably due to the year-round, unchanging temeperature of 8 C (46.4 F) of the water here, which is said to have probably originated from a nearby lake. It’s best to access this attraction by car. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Kiyosato-cho trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • As the name suggests, the mysterious atmosphere that God seems to live in. The mind seems to be purified. It is recommended in summer when transparency is high. I think the way you see it depends on the weather, so it's better to choose when the weather is good.

  • A pond where the water of Lake Mashu springs out. The sand of the bottom is springing up and it is seen well that it is yuura yuura in the spring water. miracle-like clarity. I think that there is not a place where the bottom of the lake is seen quite clearly here.

  • The Kaminoko pond is a short distance from the carpark (free). The drive towards the pond was scenic as you can trace the water sources. Do take note there are small holes in the road leading towards the pond (perhaps it is a measure to keep speed in check), so do drive carefully. We met with a slight drizzle when we visit the pond. The turquoise blue of the water was still visible. Take a read at the signboard as it has a special story of how the pond got it's name. Beautiful nice place. Great for a stop over.
  • you should visit there and confirm the clean water fountained underground everyday not by photo by your eyes.
