Kaminoko Pond (神の子池)

Lake

Kaminoko Pond is a small pond about 220 meters in circumference, with a maximum depth of five meters, which is said to have been formed by underground water from Lake Mashu. The name of Lake Mashu in the Ainu language is “Kintan Kamui Toh” (“Lake of the Mountain God”), so as the pond was believed to derive from underflow water from Lake Mashu, it was named Kaminoko (“Child of the God”) Pond. Despite its small size, around 12,000 tons of water gushes up into the Pond every day. The water temperature remains constant at around 8°C all year round. Kaminoko Pond is very beautiful, with a mysterious blue coloration, and high water clarity that makes it possible to see the bottom of the Pond.

          Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
