Jizodaki no Izumi
One of the 100 Best Water of the Heisei Period in Japan
Mt. Daisen has been worshiped as a god since long ago, and attracted a lot of worshipers. Daisenji (Daisen Temple) is said to become even more crowded on a festival day. Jizodaki no Izumi prospers as a key junction from Izumo and Yonago city. Worshipers used to drink a fresh water and rest their weary feet at the spring. The Buddhist stone statue standing by the spring, is called "jizo", and has been regarded as a guardian deity of the water and a safe journey.
There are factories of two major drinking water company Coca-Cola and Suntory in Mt. Daisen.
PLEASE HELP PRESERVE THE SPRING!
- Take your litter home.
- Do not BBQ.
- Do not swim.
- Do not let your pet swim.
- Do not pull up any plants.
- Boil the water before you drink.
