Japan's 'Dragon Eye' Pond Opens Up as Ice Melts

Japan’s famed “Dragon Eye” pond, at the foot of Mount Hachimantai, in Niseko, “woke up” on June 7, as melting snow and ice gave the illusion of an eye opening after a long slumber.

The Kagami Pond, as it is also known, is a popular tourist attraction, and described as a “magnificent natural wonder” by one travel publication. Credit: Akitavision via Storyful
