LAKE/POND/MARSH

湖沼[KOSHŌ]

Japan is a water-rich country blessed with numerous attractive lakes, ponds, and marshes, many of which are popular tourist spots where visitors can enjoy boating, canoeing, cruising, and other water activities. Kaminoko-ike Pond and Aoi-ike Pond in Hokkaido known for their mysteriously luminous blue color are attracting a lot of Instagrammers these days. How did they capture the color? Can I do it, too? For me, an adventurous journey always begins with curiosity.
