Hello everyone! I’m MARINA, an artist from Yatsushiro city in Kumamoto prefecture 🎤In the blink of an eye, May will be over 😊Time flies by so fast. I’ve been writing this blog for almost a year now😱 I’m really impressed with myself that I’ve been able to do this for so long, but the reason I’ve been able to do it is because there are so many things to love about Kumamoto! Now, today, we will continue to share the charm of Kumamoto!
It’s getting hotter and hotter, so here are some of the best places to cool off in Kumamoto for the summer ✨.
Kumamoto is famous for its spring water, right? We’ve found some great spring water spots 💧✨.
Takamori Yusui Tunnel Park
Takamori Yusui Tunnel Park is a famous spring water spot in Takamori-cho, Aso-gun, Kumamoto. Tunnels! Why? Some of you may be wondering why. Well, there is an interesting reason. The former Japanese National Railways (JNR) was planning to build a railway line across the border between the two prefectures and was excavating a tunnel in this area, but the underground water source was cut off in the middle of the line, causing a massive outpouring of water. What’s interesting is that Kumamoto is such a water-rich area, and nature has forced the construction of this wonderful spot 😆.
The tunnel is 2,055m long and has a capacity of 32 tons of water per minute. In the tunnel, you can see a waterfall flowing from the excavated bedrock and a fountain called “Water Pearl”, where water balls move in a mysterious way. From mid-November to December, a Christmas Fantasy is held. There is also a “Yushukan”, a museum that explains the tunnel in detail, so you can see that the tunnel has been designed as a spot for people to enjoy😍! From the outside of the tunnel, you can feel the healing clean air, and when you enter the tunnel, there is a fantasy and a wonderful performance, which is a perfect place for the cool and hot summer 😌✨.
Access: 10 minutes walk from JR Takamori station. It can also be reached by car🚗and there is a car park! The entrance fee is 300 yen for adults and 100 yen for children🎫.
It’s been a relaxing and heartwarming blog since the morning ☺️I know the start of the week can be a bit daunting, but I hope this blog has given you a bit of a boost to get you going! It’s a great way to start the week off on the right foot, but it’s also a great way to start the week off on the right foot.
