Mikawa Springs (Odaiba no Mizu Spring)

They release roughly 57.6 tons of water per day, and have not only become an important aspect of the lives of the local people, but are also designated as one of the 100 best waters of the Heisei Era (1989 to 2019) in Japan. Apart from the Odaiba no Mizu Spring, there are also several other springs including Ohama no Mizu Spring, and Yasumaru Meisui Spring.
