Jul. Early morning
This pond spreads its shallow waters towards an open prairie in the virgin forest. There are small islands dotting the pond like small paddies, creating a calming scenery. Visitors can catch the sight of the mountains of Kasumizawa and Hotakadake in its surroundings. Fresh greenery can be enjoyed in May; in mid-June to early July, the renge azaleas and nikkokisuge blossoms are at their peak, while in October, yellow autumn leaves and late autumn fog ice make their appearance.
