  • Spring water springs Gush and elsewhere did not noticeably absent, but a lot of small water area around Mt. ASO. Most tourist oriented and down to the River, enjoying the cool thing here is easy. You don't stop by overworking because it offers many restaurants and is no big deal.

  • With always stop by when I was traveling in the direction of ASO "Shirakawa River" clean heart is healed. Cleaning 100 yen is required. I think 100 yen was cheap. Water springs Gush incessantly. It is very beautiful and mysterious feeling. Drinking sweet, mellow, and very helpful. Here, you will have a delicious water and bring a bottle.
