Kaminoko Pond

Kaminoko Pond, literally meaning “child of the gods,” gets its name from an Ainu legend, which says that its waters came from the nearby Lake Mashu, the lake of the gods.
And there is something mystical about Kaminoko Pond. The crystal-clear water tricks your senses into thinking the pond is much shallower than it actually is. The white volcanic ash sitting at the bottom of the pond reflects back blue light from the sun, resulting in the intense color.
