  • Before the earthquake and equally from the Green bottom soundly and water sprang was. Even faster water flow slightly algae's colors was thin. Enjoyed the summer feet water facilities in the middle of the construction is Roussillon in cold water in the summer of this year. And up the stairs and enters the coffee shop and immediately "thank you" and a bright female voice. Come and thank you for you that will mean. Is it as visitors are still very few. Charcoal roasted coffee! Parking is also free, so now is the time.

  • Can't go after the earthquake disaster is a holy place of attending on a regular basis, was worried. Can we finally go, wow. Major highway and Highway 57 and is fragmenting, reachable only on Milky load or green road, quite devious. Repair and build a dynamic way reminiscent of construction work is passed in a way both touched and admired officials. Water in the street before power spot, like a soul about the lees to be washed away. Many tourists their et al as well as that there was a steady recovery, and it favorably. Thank you very much, also.

  • Previously was free, but now as a cleaning 100 yen per person must be paid. You can see movement of gravel ponds as the water is not too great, so from the bottom of the water and the water streams out of the appearance. Understand clearly is light and sweet and drink, especially it is fit, coffee etc.
