There is a roaring stream of spring water at Rakujuen Garden, right in front of Mishima Station, and another spring is flowing steadily at Shirataki Park, just a few blocks away. This area is rich in spring water, and water is gushing out here and there. The Kakita River Spring, located on the Kakita River that flows through Shimizu-cho, is the last boss among such spring water spots.
The Kakita River, which is only about 1.2 km long, is a rare river that is fed by water from dozens of springs. If you think that the water is just gushing out without making any noise, you are mistaken. Although it makes no sound, more than 100 cubic meters of water gushes out every day, and it is so abundant that it is used not only for drinking water but also for industrial and agricultural purposes.
When you actually look at the water source called Wakima in Kakitagawa Park, you can see through the crystal clear river water that the soil at the bottom of the river is shaking violently, and you realize that water is gushing out even at this very moment. The gush of water was beyond my imagination, and when I finished walking along the boardwalk around the park and returned to the grassy square, it was as if the scene I had just witnessed was a lie.
