The blue pond in Biei, Hokkaido, appeared as the result of works on a dam built to control erosion processes and protect the nearby areas from mudflows. The unusual bright turquoise color of the water is caused by minerals. For a long time, this natural object remained closed for visitors and only became accessible a few years ago.
