Taisho Pond-JapanPhotoGuide-041

I already introduced you to the beautiful Myojin Pond in Kamikochi and now it is time to show you photos Taisho Pond. Like Myojin Pond, Taisho Pond is about an hour walk from Kappabashi, but in the opposite direction. So if you were to talk from Myojin Pond to Taisho Pond, it would take you about 2 hours to hike there. Of course, those walking times are not taking into account the numerous times you will want to stop along the way to take photos of the beautiful nature scenery or perhaps the wild animals like monkeys you could encounter along the way! In any case, back to Taisho Pond… I place I could have spent my entire stay as it is absolutely beautiful and every single photo seems to come out great. I would have loved to get get some photos with more clouds or fog, but really, Taisho Pond makes it hard to take a bad photo!

Taisho Pond-JapanPhotoGuide-031 One nice thing about Taisho Pond is that there is a bus stop there and you could even take a taxi from the bus terminal the pond, but you should walk at least one way, so you don’t miss some photo opportunities like this on the nature trail.  There is also a small gift shop and restaurant where the bus stops for Taisho Pond, which is as nice as place as any to relax with a cold beverage and enjoy the view.  If you couldn’t tell already, Taisho Pond is probably my favorite place in Kamikochi!  The only thing I don’t like about taking photos here was it was way to hard to pick my favorite photos to share!
