Izumi no Oshozu has been spouting water and supporting life for over 600 years. It was discovered by farmers during the Sengoku period. Its water was so prized by locals that there were some who would only drink water from there. You may see some elderly folks carrying tea kettles and pumping up water even now. Approximately seven minutes by car via Tsuruga Interchange on the Hokuriku Expressway.

Fukui Main Areas
Northeast of Kyoto, the ancient Tojinbo Cliffs separate Fukui prefecture from the Sea of Japan in a stretch of land well worth exploring. Water sports and seaside delicacies are available in abundance as the spectacular rugged coastline flattens down into beaches to the west of the prefecture, while inland, Fukui is home to Zen Buddhist temples and historic ruins.
