Maruike-sama is a pond made of spring water gushing out from this area.
The water around here is really beautiful, and this pond itself has a beautiful emerald green.
Somehow, it is a mysterious pond.
Where's Mr. Maruike?
It is about a 4-minute walk from the parking lot to Maruike-sama. When you get to Maruike-sama, you can walk around and take pictures from a place that looks beautiful.
There was also a shrine in the back. It is a sacred atmosphere.
There is a salmon hatchery in the parking lot, and the water of the river (Ushido River) flowing around there is also very beautiful.
The water in the river was crystal clear, and the fish swimming in the river looked good.

Maruike-sama Parking Lot
In front of the salmon hatchery is a parking lot like Maruike.
Is it okay to stop for a moment from a distance? I thought, but there was a signboard for sightseeing in the parking lot, and it was stopped with peace of mind.
I think that about 10 cars can be parked, it is a free parking lot.
