Tengawa-no-mizu Spring, Hobomi

This spring is said to have been named in the Nara Period (710–794) by the famous buddhist priest Gyoki. It is designated as one of the Top 100 Exquisite and Well-Conserved Waters of Japan. Producing an impressive 400 tonnes of water daily, this spring has never once dried up. In the past it was used as the source for a small-scale water supply system, although today it is used for agriculture.
