Takanami-no-Ike Pond


A hidden sanctuary for rejuvenation amidst grand nature.

This pristine remote region sits at 540 meters above sea level, and is a certified UNESCO World Geopark. Within it is Takanami-no-Ike Pond, a 13-meter-deep reservoir that holds water throughout the year, flaunting a kaleidoscope of colors with each passing season.

Set against the majestic cliffs of Mt. Myojo, lush trees mirror themselves on the pond's placid surface, forming captivating scenery and treating visitors to a rejuvenating experience. It’s also renowned for hosting giant fish rumored to reach lengths of up to 4 meters, making it a haven for nature enthusiasts.

There is also a resthouse, store, campground, and ground golf course, providing myriad ways to immerse yourself in the area's charm. Not far away is Hisui Gorge and a fishing park, adding to the fun.
