Otowa Falls

The pure waters of the Kizugawa River still flow down the mountain at Otowa Falls.  Above Kiyomizudera shrine, the river’s course has been artificially divided so that visitors can choose to drink from any of three stone flumes projected over a hillside terrace.

  • If the believer drinks from the stream on the left, it will bestow wisdom.
  • To drink from the stream on the right assists in finding a spouse.
  • The middle stream offers longevity.

Drink from all of them and you gain nothing.
