The nearby Lake Mashu is called the Lake of God in the Ainu language. The pond is called "Kaminoko-ike (Kami = God)" because it is made of groundwater from Lake Mashu.
This pond is so "blue" that it looks like a swimming pool in the forest. Although it is a famous tourist spot, there are no stores and it is not a place to spend a lot of time sightseeing since you can only see the pond, but the lushness of this small pond is worth a visit.
