... dams. The Blue Pond is named after it's deep blue color which it owes to natural minerals dissolved in the water.
Just a little bit further up the way is a deep forest. We stopped and walked a bit into the forest. Left and right from the little path are lots of graves where people bury the ashes of their loved ones. But at the end of the little road is a beautiful waterfall. There is nobody else around and it ...
... forest. But we couldn't find it at all. Just when we gave up our hunt to this forest we saw a wild deer a few meters away from us. I tried to come closer to take a picture and it wasn't even that scared because I could come close to 6 meters away from it. It probably found eating more important at that moment.
We stopped again at a shrine and temple on our way back to the hostel. Momo showed me how the praying works and ...
What a magic day. In the morning we made fresh tracks through powder knee deep, which was magic. Later we did some off piste skiing through waist deep powder which was fun but tricky. Fell once, and couldn't get out of the snow to put the skis on! In the afternoon we did shorter runs through soft powder until the pain made us stop for the day Hot bath with beer to finish off the ...

Look at the photos to see what we have been getting up to over the week.

As we walked further in, we could see an ice restaurant followed by a couple of igloos.One igloo was an ice bar, while one of the others held classes to make snow flake strap. My favourite was the ice chapel as the blue illuminated ice chapel was beautiful.

TravelPod Member ReviewsFurano Natulux Hotel
The Natulux hotel is conveniently located opposite the Furano JR station. The carpark is located just next to the hotel entrance. The room is small but modern and well laid out. The pillows are comfortable for the non-Japanese traveller that is more used to a softer "western" style pillow. The location is superb. Literally 2 minutes to our BBQ dinner at Yamadori. Because we were here in summer, there was also an awesome festival held at the street just next to the hotel. The performances were memorable and of a very high standard.
