Taisho Pond Reviews
訪れた時は曇りだしてきて、山の映る水面の様子はくっきりとは拝めませんでした。それでも焼岳を背にした大正池の姿は、成り立ちを知ったこともあり、見所の多い上高地の中で、心に残る景色のひとつとなりました。 more »When I visited, it was cloudy, and I couldn't see the state of the surface of the water reflected in the mountains. Nevertheless, the appearance of Taisho Pond, with Mt. Yakidake as its back, became one of the most memorable scenery in the kamikochi area, where there were many attractions.
We took the bus and stopped at Taisho pond to start our hike to Myojin pond. It's a pretty tranquil place, and if the sky is clear, you can see the mountain range in the background. more »
Very beautiful place withe amazing view on the mountains around. The round trip to Taissho pond from Kappabashi bridge takes about 2.5-3 hours including stops for pictures and to enjoy the view. There are restrooms along the way every 10-15 minutes. If you are not to loud there are good chances you will see monkeys. The lake is beautiful and peaceful and there is option to rent a boat.
The water is so clear that you can see the bottom of lake. Moreover, if you have time, you must row a boat in the lake. The experience of rowing a boat here will be memorable.
