Spring water of Fukidashi Park in Kyogoku, at the foot of Mt. Yotei, was selected in 1985 as one of the “100 Best Waters in Japan” by the Environment Agency.
Rain and snow that fall on Mt. Yotei seep into the soil and, after several decades, gush from the foot of the mountain. The water is a chilly 6? throughout the year and is rich in minerals. The water can be drunk at the park, and many people bring containers to take it home with them.
Fukidashi choral singing festival and Shakkoi festival is held in July on the outdoor stage in Fukidashi park.
