I went hiking again on a National Park here in Japan. This time it’s Bandai National Park.
Mount Bandai erupted in 1888 dropping mineral deposits to surrounding waters giving it different colors.
I’m not sure because it’s really more like two-and-a-half-to-three-and-a-half-colored lakes to me. 🙂
But don’t take my word for it as I am color-blind. 🙂
And there not only lakes but ponds as well.
We saw a natural koi pond.
This one is yellowish, cream, or muddy color.
The majority of the color is bluish green.
Love the sound of water flowing when hiking.
A bit of flowers on the trails.
This is a very easy hike…
… with lush greenery all around.
The end of the trail was when we hit the big lake some boats.
Don’t miss the koi with a heart-shaped marking on its side.
You may not noticed it, but it was actually raining that day.
It is more suggested to come visit this area during fall when the leaves change its colors as well as the lakes and ponds. It is said that the colors of the lakes and ponds depend on time of the day, the vegetation around, weather, and time of the year.
Last Call …
