I took a day trip to Chino City, Nagano Prefecture. My main purpose was to visit Mishaka Pond, which is famous for its reflection. The pond is also known as a place where a famous Japanese painter created his work and a TV commercial of the SHARP AQUOS was shot.
Access to Mishaka Pond
Now I arrived at Mishaka Pond.
The nearest station to the pond is the Chino station, which is about two and a half hour ride from Tokyo by “Azusa”, limited express train. Then, there is a bus service from the station to the nearest bus stop.
Panoramic view shots
I started to take my photos with panoramic views. When I arrived at the venue in the morning, it was cloudy. According to the weather forecast, it will become sunny in the afternoon.
Then, I took many telephotos, as the Japanese painter’s work and the TV commercial I mentioned before were taken with such angles. You can also see how beautiful the pond’s reflection is.
The sky is starting to clear up
Now it has started to become sunny, so I took panoramic photos again.
There is a hot spring near the pond and I visited there too. In the next article, I will write about it.
