Spring water

Oita, Kyushu

Spring water is everywhere in Taketa. Some are carbonated and some are hard water which is quite rare in Japan. Taste differs from location to location, so calling at different springs would be interesting. Please be sure to bring a bottle or a cup with you for tasting. There is a 100% spring water pool by the Kawauda spring which opens during the summer vacation.


It is said that there are more than 50 springs scattered across the city. Some easily accessible springs from the city centre are; Kawauda and Senzui. Carbonated spring water outwells mainly in the Kuju area.
