    This is a famous spring in the Daijiji-cho, Morioka City. It has been named one of the 100 Exquisite and Well-Conserved Waters in Heisei Era, and like the nearby Daiji Spring Water, it has been used as an everyday water supply since ancient times. Four wells, one for drinking water, one for washing rice, one for washing clothes, and one for washing feet were set up and were managed by the local people. Near the spring are businesses that depend on using the famous water: including tofu makers, sake brewers, and soba noodle shops.

Iwate Areas

A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region’s delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you’ll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
