【Hotel Official Site】ONE NISEKO RESORT TOWERS in Niseko, Hokkaido
Niseko’s Kanro (“sweet dew”) Spring is located in Sakamoto Park just at the bottom of the slope in front of the hotel. It is a well-known spot where delicious spring water can be found. It was named the English equivalent of sweet dew water after Emperor Showa tasted it and declared, “It tastes like sweet dew”.
This rock can be found in Konbuonsen Park to the south of Kanro Spring.
The story goes that a long time ago a young Niseko man named Iwao fell in love with a beautiful lady named Pirika who lived in Rankoshi. However, they could not remain together because marriage between different tribes was forbidden.
Go and check for yourself – next to the rock there’s a description of what happened.
