Kinjo Reitaku (Sacred spring)

Remarkable Water
"This well hasa mystical legend behind it, located on the grounds of Kanazawa Shrine adjacent to Kenrokuen Garden. A quiet spring bubbles out of the foot of a hill called Ho-ozan, and according to legend, a man named Imohori Togoro was washing yams in the flowing water when gold dust came out of them. It came to be called the ""gold washing marsh"" (""kanearai no sawa""), which is said to be the source of the name Kanazawa. Nowadays, the spring is famous as a spot with mystical powers, and many tourists visit it along with Kanazawa Castle Park and Kenrokuen Garden."
