Yuusui Pool 〔湯水プール〕
This is a pool that was built over a natural spring. The pool is shallow, so no really diving and swimming. Next to the pool is there is a pond, also shallow. Both are nice to paddle around in if you need to cool off – the water is very cold. However, its too bad that its not deeper, the water comes up to about my chest.

Kikuchi Keikoku (菊池渓谷)
This is a gorge on the Kikuchi river. Cold water to swim in! There are also natural water slides. And it is a beautiful gorge with nice hiking trails. A great place to cool down in in the summer.
