Watering Place of Fukidashi Park
80,000 tons a day mineral water of Mt. Yotei (羊蹄山) has been gushing out at the upstream, and it has been flowing to the downstream, and 2 ponds are born. After rain and snow fallen to the Mt. Yotei are in filtered into the underground for nearly 70 years, the spring water gushes out from the ground. The water contains abundant mineral, and is cold water with 6 C on the average, and it tastes mellow. Negative ions are in the air, so it is comfortable space. If you will enjoy taking a walk and restaurants, you should park your car on the parking lot of the road side "Meisui-no-Sato Kyogoku". If you draw the water from the watering place, it is convenient to park your car on the watering place parking lot.
A lot of tourists come to here on foot from the roadside station. When I visited here, various people such as Japanese people, Thai people, Chinese people drank the mineral water. They brought a plastic bottle, and drew the mineral water with it. Please bring the plastic bottle without forgetting. Because polyethylene tanks are sold at the roadside station, a lot of people will draw the mineral water with those, and use mineral water at their homes.
