Spring Water of the River Kakitagawa

Spring Water of the River Kakitagawa

The Kakitagawa is said to be one of the Three Great Clearwater Rivers of Japan along with the Shimanto in Shikoku and Nagara River in Gifu. Though it is a mere 1.2km (or 3/4 of a mile) in length, its astonishing transparency and the ecosystem that is to be found in its plane make it worth a visit.   The river is fed by rainwater and melted snow from around Mt. Fuji which travels through lava beds from eruptions millennia ago. This journey through volcanic rock gives the river water its striking clarity.

Numazu Goyotei – A Former Imperial Villa

Numazu Goyotei – A Former Imperial Villa

This historically significant mansion was a residence for three successive Japanese Emperors and their families when they visited Numazu. Construction began on the Goyotei Imperial Villa at Numazu in the nineteenth century and was used by the Meiji, Taisho, and Showa Emperors. It was still in use as late as the 1960s. In 1970, it was opened to the public as part of the Numazu Imperial Villa Memorial Park.   Its views out on the splendid garden, Suruga Bay and on clear days, Mt. Fuji, make it a must see location in this area.
