Biei's Blue Pond & Shirahige Falls

The Blue Pond gets its name literally from the bright blue hue of its water. It is not naturally formed, and is a result of the creation of a dam in the wake of an eruption from a nearby volcano on Mount Tokachi. The Blue Pond changes color depending on weather and season. The pond only appears blue when viewed from land, and the color is not found in the water itself.
