Monday was a national holiday. I went on a field trip with some of my adult English class students. They took me to some sightseeing spots in the area that no one else had ever thought to take me to before. I never knew there were so many sightseeing spots in Nikaho city! Why did no one tell me before?

First stop was Mototaki, a cold water spring in the foothills of Mt. Chokai above Kisakata town. In centuries past, people used to travel by horse to Mototaki to get water because at the source, Mototaki water was about as clean as water ever got. We collected water there. I have bottles of it sitting in my kitchen, and it is indeed very delicious and fresh, much more so than Konoura tap water, which is vile.
