水の町

Water Town

Township of Shimizu, Misato-Town, Akita Prefecture. There were 126 spring water in the town, which was selected as one of the famous water waters (Environment Agency). At the foot of the Ou mountain range, it is rich in groundwater because it is on the alluvial fan, and it is common for each household to pump up groundwater and use it.
Also ground water that pumped up from underground 25 meters is also charged water to be collected. The temperature of the groundwater is around 12 degrees throughout the year, the water quality is soft water. In one theory, it is said that "soft water that often springs up sake is good", etc. Charge water largely affects the taste of sake.
