Create an itinerary including Myojin Pond
Immerse yourself in pristine nature amid rugged mountains and steep slopes at Myojin Pond. Life-like reflections of trees off the still surface and mist above the water will make you pause as you observe the vegetation on the bottom of the pond through crystal clear water. Moss-covered rocks lapped with water provide shelter for ducks and dragon flies, while curious snow monkeys hang out in evergreen trees above. Appreciate the small waterfall and wooden suspension bridge that add to the scene, then taste freshly caught fish on a skewer. You can find accommodations near the pond. Make Myojin Pond a part of your Matsumoto vacation plans using our Matsumoto trip planner.

  • There is no reason to pay for entry to this area, Kamikochi is filled with many incredible places which are much nice than this ;)
  • A really lovely pond tbf. As a stingy northerner I normally baulk at paying entrance fees for stuff like this, but it was worth it.
