  • It was the first time in drinking clean spring water and, in one scene of the film, but age cannot do it and had such a dangerous thing, but here is the scoop with a ladle, you really can, long life. Moreover, River, spring-fed large amounts of good! This is a very tasty water. There are places that still brings such natural grace? And collapses and really surprised me with the Act of any malicious or morality is not in suspense and expectations I want to absolutely protect the treasures. Far into the future, take care of your lover.

  • Shirakawa River and fairly well and easy to access. Water/min 60-ton spring with underground sand gushing in the total water of Masaaki Shirakawa as its name suggests, is shining and beautiful. It is recommended to bring a bottle and sells.

  • From the parking lot to the entrance a little distance. At the entrance back there many shops and traders. We walked all the way along the river and see the toll for environmental protection and water pumping stations. I tried taking the water, clean, delicious water. At the beginning of September, sunny day we went. Cheerful sunshine, strong, sweaty, so taken aback in the cold water. Clear blue water of these is very good. 見toremasu has views of the water. Overwhelmed by the momentum of the spring water and the total water resources of the first-class River Shirakawa, known as 60 tons per minute.
