Senzoku Pond’s name literally means “Foot Washing Pond,” which it gained after the great Buddhist priest Nichiren washed his feet in it while traveling from Mt. Minobu to Hitachi Province to recuperate. Supplied by the Shimizukubo-yusui Spring, the pond is 40 thousand square meters in area and delights visitors throughout the year with seasonal beauty, including cherry blossoms in spring, fresh verdure in summer, fall foliage in autumn, and migratory birds in winter. Come enjoy walking amidst cool waterside breezes, from the walking path along the murmuring Senzoku Nagare canal flowing from Senzoku Pond, to the water-rich Koike Park.
