This is the fountain at the foot of Mt. Asahi(dake). A variety of minerals were contained in the water.
Many visitors bring large pet bottles or tank to carry this water. It is not obliged to pay money to the authority but in order to preserve this wonderful scenery and water, some donation is recommended on the poster.
We visited Hokkaido Garden near the "Souunkyou Valley" and found the restaurant run by the famous chef Mr. Mikuni. The name is "Fratello di Mikune". We had reserve a table for us but the number of the table is so limited. We should share the happy hour with other tourists.
