One of the really beautiful Japan tourist places in is the Blue Pond in Hokkaido. The water here is an unbelievably icy blue and with the tree stumps emerging from the surface of the pond, it looks ethereal and stunning. This is an artificially created pond which was designed to protect the area from mudflows that take place because of the Mt. Tokachi volcano nearby.
