You should go there this weekend
The name of the pond, "KAGAMI NUMA" means "MIRROR". You can go there with 1.6km mountain walking but main road will close on October 22nd. SO you should go there this weekend. There are not many people and I could smell animals closely. I recommend to bring bear bells or bear spray, or book our trekking tour.
WABI SABI JAPAN is waiting for you!
