Kinjo Reitaku (Sacred Well)、金城霊沢(2013.1.9)
The name of Kanazawa (Marsh of Gold) is taken from this well. According to a legend, once there was an honest farmer, Imohori Togoro. When he washed his mountain potatoes in this well, where it was a natural marsh then, he found gold in the mud, and shared it with his neighbors, and they lived happily ever after.
Unfortunately, there is no gold to be found in the well now. However, some gold like a gold dust has in fact been found in the near Sai river, so this story may not be as dubious as it sounds. The dark cave contains a stone tablet written by the fhirteenth Lord , Maeda Nariyasu ( 1811-1884), explaining the story of the well.
