Another Area You Need to Add to Your Bucket List: The Blue Pond in Hokkaido
"Aoiike"(青い池), which means the blue pond is a stunning area to visit while you're in Hokkaido! The area isn't so touristy yet, which makes you feel like you've discovered a secret paradise. It is outside of Shirogane Onsen, so be sure to check this place out while you're in the area!
The Blue Pond Hokkaido
The reason the water is blue is because the water absorbs the minerals of the cliff as it flows down from it. The minerals cause the blue hue.
Also, other substances,like sulfur, are mixed into the pond, and whiten the rocks at the bottom. This makes it all the more impressive!
When to Go
It is also accessible by car. The pond is near the Prefectural road number 966, and there is a free parking lot. From there it is about a 5 minute walk.
