Japan Photo Travel Fukushima #1: Hibarako, Goshikinuma

Last weekend we went to spent a night in Fukushima prefecture, and we did quite a bit of sight-seeing! I'll keep it short and let the photos speak.

After a quick stop at Hibara-ko (桧原湖), where some guy was trying to sell us a ride on his boat, we headed to Goshiki-numa (五色沼, translates to "Five-color ponds").

Goshiki-numa is, as the name says, a series of ponds where the water is said to be of five distinct colors. Some of the ponds are named after their color, like Aka-numa (赤沼, red), Ruri-numa (瑠璃沼, azure), Ao-numa (青沼, blue)... We took a short walk along Bishamon-numa (毘沙門沼), the largest of the ponds. There were small rowboats for rental, and as time passed there were more and more rowers on the lake.

Ce lieu semble merveilleux sur tes photos. L'eau pure qui scintille au soleil et la végétation luxuriante donnent à cette place une qualité originelle. Je veux y être...

Merci! Oui en effet c'était très beau. :) J'aurais aimé voir les autres étangs aussi mais on avait plusieurs d'autres endroits à aller voir..!
