Matsugata-no-ike Pond 真姿の池湧水群

1 Nishi Motomachi Kokubunji-shi Tokyo

Waters that spring eternal

Matsugata-no-ike Pond, a spring water stream that flows from the headstreams of the nearby Nogawa River, is said to have healing properties, with local folklore telling of a woman who recovered from illness after bathing in it. Located in the vicinity of Kokubunji Yakushido Temple, combine a visit to Matsugata-no-ike Pond with a stroll along the nearby Otaka-no-Michi path, where the noble Owari Tokugawa family practiced falconry during the Edo period (1603-1867).
