Yuzawa Water

Near the waterfall is a small shrine and this stone basin capturing the water from a natural spring. The water is also blessed by the local priests, making this hiking trail a pilgrimage location for those seeking purification by these special waters. Water is important to Yuzawa, for its use as snow, rain, onsen, sake, and beer. Yuzawa high street, the main street in town, also has a number of natural hot-spring, that have been turned into foot baths that can be used free of charge. It's great to sit back, soak your feet and watch the world go by, even in the scorching summer heat.
