Kaminoko Pond, Kiyosato-cho

4.6
#1 of 8 in Things to do in Kiyosato-cho
Take in the serene atmosphere of tranquil natural surroundings as you admire the crisp, color-changing water of Kaminoko Pond. Surrounded by lush green vegetation, the pond’s water is often described as mysterious. Inside, you can find fallen trees and branches, which instead of decomposing have simply sunk to the bottom. This is probably due to the year-round, unchanging temeperature of 8 C (46.4 F) of the water here, which is said to have probably originated from a nearby lake. It’s best to access this attraction by car. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Kiyosato-cho trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • About 30 years ago, it was a place that no one knew, but now it is a tourist spot and the parking lot is also large. There are some places on the way to the forest that can't be passed by oncoming cars, so be careful not to put too much speed out.

  • If you go along the gravel road about 3 kilometers from the national highway, there is a large parking lot, from which there is a promenade that goes around the God's child pond. The blue color changes every time the light goes depending on the season. After all, the transparency was very high, and Oshorokoma was swimming.

  • The Kaminoko pond is a short distance from the carpark (free). The drive towards the pond was scenic as you can trace the water sources. Do take note there are small holes in the road leading towards the pond (perhaps it is a measure to keep speed in check), so do drive carefully. We met with a slight drizzle when we visit the pond. The turquoise blue of the water was still visible. Take a read at the signboard as it has a special story of how the pond got it's name. Beautiful nice place. Great for a stop over.
  • you should visit there and confirm the clean water fountained underground everyday not by photo by your eyes.
