PEACH LIVE

A clear, mysterious,
cobalt blue
pond.

Kaminokoike

This pond is named Kaminokoike (the god’s child pond) after the legend that it is spring water from water that seeps underground from Lake Mashu, which has a different name meaning “the god’s lake” in Ainu. Since the water transparency is high, the 5m-deep bottom of the pond can be clearly seen. Sunlight reflects on the white volcanic ash on the bottom and makes it a beautiful cobalt blue. The water temperature is about 8 degrees centigrade throughout the year. The fallen trees lying there without rotting also look mysterious.

Japanese white birches grow around the pond, and enhance the mysterious atmosphere.

Take a walk around the pond along the boardwalk.

The blue pond heals us just by viewing it.
