Kagano Hachiman-jinja Shrine Well加賀野八幡神社井戸
A scenic well located a five minute walk from the Kaganoguchi bus stop on the Kintetsu Bus from JR Ogaki Station. One of the most celebrated natural spring wells of the many found in Ogaki, a place which has been known for its abundance of water since ancient times, this popular well was also selected as one of the 100 most beautiful springs in the Heisei period. The current well was dug in 1988. On weekends, the area bustles with people come to enjoy the burbling well’s beauty and partake in some its delicious waters. In 1991, a garden pond fed by the well and a children’s park were erected around the well; sticklebacks (Hariyo), a rare variety of fish which can only live in pure waters, swim in the pond.
