Travel Guide - Haccho-ike Pond

Information

Haccho-ike Pond is a crater lake of Mt. Amagi-san.
It is known familiarly as "Izu-no-Hitomi (The Eye of Izu)" because of its round shape and beauty.
Covered with Aosuzu (a species of bamboo grass), the pond is also known as "Aosuzu-no-Ike (Aosuzu's Pond)".

This area is famous as the habitat of one of Japan's natural treasures Moriaogaeru (Forest Green Tree Frog) as well as wild birds.

The Emperor Showa visited the pond in 1981 and a monument was erected at the edge of the pond to commemorate the event.
