Kawai Springs [Chibumura]
A spring near the hearts of the islanders
Along the prefectural road lined with Jizo statues heading toward the county districts from Chibu's Kurii Port, there are places where water springs forth. Called the Kawai Springs, they are known as 'The Water of Life', and have been selected as the top waters of Shimane. With wells dug near the coast and spring waters flowing from the mountain peaks, Chiburijima is known as an island for its wealth of water.
