Blue Pond

HOKKAIDO

Blue Pond is a man-made water feature in Biei, Hokkaido, Japan. It is the result of works on the Biei River , carried out after the 1988 eruption of Mount Tokachi, to protect the town of Biei from volcanic mudflows. The colour is thought to result from the accidental presence of colloidal aluminium hydroxide in the water.
