“Don't miss the turtles!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

A nice lake in Nara that you are like to pass visiting the various spots here.
The highlight is the turtles enjoying the sun on a rock there! First I thought they were artificial. I kept look at them and then realised: they are not. They just managed to sit still and do nothing.
Make sure you way pass by this lake during your visit (on a sunny day).

“A small lake!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2013

It is a small and beautiful lake in the shopping district of Nara. The lake looks wonderful at dawn and dusk with the reflection of the pagoda. It is surrounded by road so you can take a walk in the evening with your beloved.
Cheers

“A Nice pond, but still a pond”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2012

One of the great things about Sarasawa pond is that it is only a small part of a wonderful area including Nara Park and the old shopping district of Nara. On its own, it is, well, nice. Even so, it is a nice part of a wonderful part of Japan to visit.
