Sightseeing Spots: Tazawako Area
In 1940, following national policies, the strong acidic water of Tamagawa was lead into Tazawako for making it a reservoir, killing the large part of Tazawako's fish. In memory of the fish and the lake-goddess Tatsuko, the resident priests of the area's temples collected voluntary subscriptions and erected the statue. It stands today, facing the lake.
