We were on the way to blue pond. It was lunch time so we decided to eat in Biei town. There was not much places around. We stopped at the place, where it was recommended on my guidebook. The decoration inside was simple. I was disappointed with food here. Soup didn’t have much flavor. There was too much potato in gratin, which supposed to have mainly fish. Anyway a chocolate cake was nice. Now our stomach was full and we were ready to go. Blue pond was waiting for us. One more thing Ben scared me by telling me that we might not see a pond in blue color because the pond might be frozen. That was panic me Ben. We came a long way to see it……come on.
