Pond of Ice (氷=ice )


Kurotake, a mountain covering the edges of Atami, Kannami and Izunokuni-shi remains the geographical features of its origin being a somma(外輪山), the outer rim of a volcanic crater. Izu Skyline Road runs along the ridge.

From one of the lookout points on the road, we can overlook a pond Koori-ga-ike (koori=ice).As the name indicates, so many years ago, people utilized ice formed on this pond.
How the temperature has changed to warm!!

When the weather is clear we can also look Mr. Fuji from the road.
