Beppu Benten Pond

A natural spring is the source of the clear cobalt water of Beppu Benten Pond, in the grounds of Itsukushima Shrine in Beppu. The water is potable and believed to have a healing effect on those who drink it, bringing good luck, wealth, and longevity. There is a water station where visitors can fill their water bottles with spring water. The water also supplies the nearby Mine City Trout Farm. Visitors can try fishing for rainbow trout at the fishing pond for a fee, and have their catch prepared at a nearby restaurant.
