Sawaike, A Japan Top 100 Pond

Last week, I posted pictures of Ryuzugataki, which was declared one of the top 100 waterfalls in Japan. Today I have pictures of a pond that was declared one of the top 100 ponds in Japan. Yes, some group really bothered to pick out the top 100 ponds in the country. This is not a joke.The pond is called Sawaike (沢池) and it is a good ways off the beaten path. The road to get there was extremely narrow and a bit frightening. The pond was quite nice though.
