Ushiwatari River, Maruike-sama Pond (丸池様・牛渡川)
The Ushiwatari River in Fukura, Yuza Town is known for the abundance and clarity of the spring water that feeds it, welling up from beneath Mt. Chokai. That spring water makes up 100% of the adjacent emerald green and highly transparent Maruike-sama Pond. People say that the fallen trees preserved at the bottom of the pond are a sign of the water's purity.

Nearby Tourist Attractions
Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
