  • You can drink the water. Takeaway is it OK if I bring plastic bottles. Just looking at the clear waters, will be healed.

  • When I went to Kumamoto (Minami ASO) must stop. Is that invisible Springs said the attraction is at that moment. Looks from places such as the pond well the mind can heal the views for a while. Sponsorship money (entrance fee) 100 yen for adults (children free) can get paid. Also how much water you can take home. Because both the ladle and sprinkling that bothered. And draw too much heavier and is harder to go.... Home to the tea house is to the left of the entrance. You can put various soy tofu here is what I'd taste. As soon as I entered the store first, furious PUSH of the clerk was blown away by the taste is good. And buy the "ball drop" every dinner Landreth about standing out. Would you have time please.
