Kakita River Park Springs is a nationally designated natural monument now preserved as a park on the upper reaches of the Kakita River repurposed as a place of relaxation for locals and also to protect and preserve nature. From the 1st and 2nd observatories in the park, visitors can see the where the water springs up all year round. Most of the water here is from snow melt from nearby Mt Fuji. In fact 1 million tons of water per day flow through here. For a time, water flows though an underground river, untill it reaches Kakita River and emerges and springs forth natural spring water.
