Goro-goro Spring Water (ごろごろ茶屋)

4.0

Other Sightseeing Spot

This watering hole is selected as one of the Select Best Waters of Japan by the Ministry of the Environment, and one of the top 34 wellsprings by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism. Visitors can freely scoop as much water as they wish using their own container. These waters are natural spring waters flowing from the karst near the Godaimatsu limestone cavern. The sound of the water flowing through the cavern reverberates here, sounding like tumbling rocks, and hence the name goro-goro. Not only is the calcium and mineral rich water healthy to drink, but is said to enhance the flavor of teas and coffee. On weekends visitors are snaked around in a line to collect some of this famous water.

名水として有名なゴロゴロ水でいれたコーヒー。家に帰れば、自分で作れるわけですが、折角なら、直ぐに堪能したいですよねという時に。ほんと癖がない水です。

水質のいい天川村の水でいれたコーヒーが飲めます。台風が通り過ぎた後だったので、近くの川の水は汚れていましたが、休憩がてら美味しいコーヒーを飲むことができました。

洞川自然研究路を一周する途中で立ち寄りました。
ゴロゴロ水の湧き出る場所は少し離れた道路の反対側にありますが、ここでは給水は禁止になっていました。

この茶店では、名水コーヒーのアイスコーヒーと葛餅をいただきました。コーヒーは特に特徴は感じませんでした。葛餅は吉野葛で作っているのでしょう。美味しかったです。

ここの前の駐車場にはたくさんの給水口が並んでいて、多くの人が軽トラの荷台にたくさんの水タ...

          With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of "traditional Japan." The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture’s treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains’ Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
