Landmark
See the water bubbling up from below at Shirakawa Springs, whose natural source lies among thick forest scenery. Sample the fresh, crisp water, selected as one of the 100 best waters in Japan by the Japanese Environmental Agency. Surrounded by tall cedars and blossoms, the spring occupies a scenic position, so bring your camera, as well as a bottle or two so you can take some water away with you. Otherwise, purchase a plastic bottle at one of the shops by the nearby shrine.
