Each year a unique spectacle turns the mountain peak lake into a giant "dragon's eye".

#1 Post by limited88 »


Located near the summit of Mount Hachimantai in northeastern Japan, this lake is a lake believed in legend to be the meeting place of two exiled love dragons.

Each winter, ice forms on Lake Kagami Numa and snow drifts on the icy surface. During spring melt, pressure from water depths causes snow to form only in the middle of the lake, transforming the circular lake's appearance into a giant eye with a ring of water open around the "pupil of the eye". The annual melting phenomenon lasted almost a week between late May and early June before all the ice had melted.

Unique imagery went viral in 2016 when tourists took pictures of a white donut ring and called it "dragon's eye" on social media. Since then, tourists from all over the world have been fascinated by the translucent water.

Interestingly, the dragon has long been a legendary ดาวน์โหลด slotxo place in Japan, and it is said that the site is where a young man transformed into a dragon after drinking from a nearby well, the love he shared with the transformed dragon. Another human being, exiled to the opposite side of the mountain, is believed to have helped keep the lake in the area completely frozen in late spring. Today, some visitors even make offerings to the dragon god in the area.
