Located near the town of Biei is this dazzling lake called, of course, 'Blue Lake'. Now picture yourself standing on the shores of this mesmerizing wonder, listening to the soft sounds of birds chattering in the surrounding forest. The brilliant turquoise color will leave you spell bound while the surrounding flora and fauna will leave you relaxed and at peace with the world. So enchanting is this incredible lake, it was photographed and selected by Apple to be one of its in-built wallpaper shots for new Apple computers.
When in Biei Hokkaido, be sure to stop by. Summer or winter, it is always a site to see.
