Kikuchi Keikoku (Ravine) is a beautiful location tucked in the mountains of Kumamoto. Located a bit of a ways outside of the small town of Kikuchi the ravine is a popular destination for locals and others in the summer. The ice cold water cools the air a few degrees and can make Kumamoto's unbearably hot summers a bit more tolerable.... More

So clear and pure you can drink it.. but freezing cold even in the summer.. You can only stay 1min in the water without hurting. A few foreigners have been jumping by the water fall and hiding underneath. One of those jewels of Japan.
