An early start (we got there before 9am) will provide a great photo opportunity. The blue hues were simply breathtakingly. For insect enthusiasts, there is a variety of smaller critters which could be digitally captured with a handphone without the use of macro lens.

This was along the way after Farm Tomita. Unusual green or blue colored pond depending on the time of the day. There is a small walk way filled with people by the time we get there around noon. You have to park your car near...More

This was the highlight of the Biei View Bus tour and it was worth it. It's more beautiful than the pictures when you see it in person. A short 10-15 minute walk is required from the parking areas on either side, but the view is...More

This pond is really beautiful with its unique landscape. Basically it takes you about 10mins walking distance from the bus stop. All you need at most is around 30mins to explore this pond and take as many pictures as you like.

I rented an electric assisted bicycle from Biei and took about 2 hours to ride here. It was upslope all the way but the electric assistance made it feel like riding on even ground. The lake was scenic and if you walk down all the...More

Rain or shine must go. Car park ground is filled of pot holes. Best seen during a sunny day. The effect of the colour differ during rain.

Nothing special about the Blue Pond during winter time. Everything is just powdery white. It would have been great to see the pond during spring where all the trees will come alive, and turn a vibrant green.

This is within thirty minutes drive from Ashahikawa airport. Very scenic and on a clear day the pond makes a mirror image reflection of the surface. Worth the drive

It's better to go to Biei first to visit the Blue Pond. Then to Furano as there's more to see at Furano besides Tomita Farm. So the balance of your time after Biei will decide how much to cover in Furano. Check google map... More

Hi Bebe O, I read that now it is open for a shorter period of time and will close earlier each day for rehabilitation. Hope this helps
