The watershed in this park is classified as a “Complete watershed” because the water is completely separated, and you can see the “Watershed” where the water flowing from Mt Dainichigatake divides into north and south. Every year, many visitors are gathered here where you can easily see the origin of Nagaragawa River in the south and Shogawa River in the north.
