This pond is called the “hand mirror of Mt. Myoko” due to the mountain being reflected onto its surface.
Pretty white arums start to appear with the melting of the snow in early April and their numbers reach 100,000 in the course of time. It will take about ten minutes to view the flowers by taking a walk on the trail that circles the pond.
