A magnificent body of water, as if descended from an artist's painting.


The Shrine's koi pond is so small with only 60 feet long, and it does not have a separate name; it is called the "Pond with no name" in Gifu, Japan. Although recently among tourists this place is becoming more and more known as "Monet's Pond" due to the associations with the famous painting by the artist Claude Monet.

This place looks even more unreal during autumn since the different shades of the trees are saturated, and there is an explosion of pigments reflected in the water. Likewise, the aquatic species that inhabit the pond are unique due to their shapes and tones; They range from blue, white, and orange to gold, black, and mottled.

On the other hand, among all the gems floating in the pond, a fish is so unique that people especially see it. According to the area's inhabitants, a fish with heart-shaped spots indicates happiness for those who see it.
