Mishaka Pond is quietly located along the Yumichi Highway leading to Okutateshina Hot Spring Resort. This place was the motif of "Midori hibiku (Green Resonance)," a masterpiece by the Japanese painter Kaii Higashiyama. The deep green larch forest reflected on the surface of the lake spreads out in front of you as a picturesque scene. It is a photo spot where many photographers gather to capture the beauty of the changing seasons.
Tateshina Highland, with its magnificent mountains in the background, is one of the best highland resorts in Nagano, bustling as a summer resort and as a winter base for skiing and snowboarding. There are driving routes through flower fields, lakes full of activities, beautiful waterfalls and valleys, and hot spring resorts with abundant hot water. You can enjoy the open scenery and lush nature of the plateau in any way you like.
