We visited Biei in two days, both time taking the JR super kamui from Sapporo to Asahikawa where you take the JR Furano line to Biei, about a 2 hours journey (5500¥ one way if you don't have a rail pass). When you arrive in Biei go rent an electric bicycle ( 1 hour/600¥) in the shop across the station's... More

Getting to the Blue Pond was a little difficult as there were various addresses provided by websites online. However, once we arrived at the Blue Pond, we were overwhelmed by the beauty of this natural wonder. The natural color of the pond and its clarity makes it so beautiful. Walk in a little further and you will see a mini... More

Very beautiful pond and easy to get to by a car. Not far from the parking lot. Well maintained walking path. The pond looks more blue when the weather is better. Be sure to walk toward the end to see the blue river. No facilities on site.

Blue Pond is not easily accessible, so driving is a must. It took about 40min from my stay near Farm Tomita (which itself is a 15min drive from Furano city centre). The place is as beautiful as they said. The track beside the pond is narrow for the crowd; a good pair of sneakers is recommended for the uneven grounds.

Hidden away in the back roads - but worth the effort to visit. The area only has car parking, so no facilities. There are various viewpoints overlooking a dam that has the clearest/bluest water. Biggest struggle is deciding where to take your photo. A good navi/GPS should make finding the location fairly easy. Expect to spend about 30/45minutes here.

Impressive! Worth the drive along the country road. A short walk from the car park. Very good esp. when the sunshine with blue sky, the pond reflecting the blue sky.

Quite an enchanted site, clear blue pond in the middle of nowhere, with tree stumps protruding from the surface if the water. Go before 6pm during autumn time to catch the great view.

Very blue color pond...good to go. However it is quite far from Biei town. If you are not driving, it is not easy to get there. Free parking..take about half an hour to talk the whole pond and to the river.
