Blue pond begins to light up Biei-cho, Hokkaido with a fantastic sight

Illumination has begun at "Blue Pond" in Biei, Hokkaido. A beautiful sight emerges on the pale blue water surface, entertaining the visitors. A blue pond was created by the accumulation of water during the construction of an embankment on the nearby Biei River. It is said that when the water of the upstream river containing aluminum components is mixed, it reflects light and looks blue. 

The light-up started on the 1st. When you illuminate the pond while changing the angle and intensity of the light with large-scale lighting, dead birch and broad-leaved trees with a few leaves float on the blue water surface, creating a fantasy-like view. Until April 30th next year
