Rather obviously named after its deep blue color, Shirogane Blue Pond originally served as part of an erosion control system essential to protecting Biei from a potential Mount Tokachidake eruption. Located next to the hot spring destination Shirogane Onsen, this site provides visitors with a scenic place to walk and take photos. It takes less than ten minutes to walk through the wooded area and arrive at this body of water.

Shirogane Blue Pond Reviews
お天気は良かったですが、池の色はいまひとつでした。トルマリンブルーというよりは乳白色。 大きなムリョウの駐車場は満車状態。池のまわりは一方通行に規制され大渋滞でした。 そばにあるお店でラムネ味の青いソフトクリームが売られていてインスタ映え！ソフトクリームを片手に林の隙間に見える池の様子を撮影するのがおすすめです。 more »The weather was good, but the color of the pond was not good. Milky white rather than tourmaline blue. The parking lot of a big Mulioh is full. The area around the pond was restricted to one-way traffic. The blue ice cream of the ramune taste is sold in the shop near, and it shines in Insta. It is recommended to take a picture of the state of the pond which can be seen in the gap of the woods with soft ice cream in one hand.

If it hadn't been for the crowd, I wouldn't have known there was a pond there. It was completely covered in snow with no sign of blue whatsoever. I would recommend people to visit here during warmer seasons.
Nice but try not to go during winter and night time as can’t really see the pond. During the night it is due to the blue light shining on the pond. But overall a nice place to visit.
