Shirakawa Springs, Minamiaso-mura

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.

    I came for the first time. It was a great environment. Feeling a little walk is a short walk from the parking lot. There were people in wheelchairs. Near water in environmental cooperation paid 100 yen. Exactly paying ¥ 500, ¥ 400 I got change. The water is cold. Forgot to bring a bottle, so purchasing a bottle in a nearby stall, have returned. Take-home water was free. Nice luxurious natural water and comes to ASO and Kuju.

    Is it worth going to the Shirakawa River still is unable to follow ASO panoramic line on the South side was closed, so wouldn't make a big detour from the ASO peaks near the ASO at the foot of South. -Rich spring waters referred to 60 tons per minute from the reservoir goes through the walkways, the high degree of transparency, was beautiful. Of course bottle has been stuffed. Cold and delicious.
