IF you buy water in convenience stores here, it likely gives Kyogoku as a source on the bottle. Big companies are not the only ones to get their water from this fountain – families from as far as Sapporo come to Kyogoku to fill dozens of canisters with the fresh Mt. Yotei spring water.
Speak to the locals and they swear your food will have an improved taste if you cook using this water. Kyogoku is a Hokkaido Heritage and popular with day-trippers from Niseko.
