Ishidatami Waterwheel Festival

Ishidatami Waterwheel Festival

When visiting the reconstructed watermills, you can also enjoy the fine local food.

Once the Fumoto River was dotted with many watermills, but in recent years their numbers decreased. Three watermill have been reconstructed by local people in order to regain the nostalgic appearance of the landscape. Now this area is being used as a place of recreation and relaxation for many people. In November there is a festival with the watermills as event site, where things like Oden with vegetables harvested in the area and Soba noodles are sold. So you can enjoy local gourmet dishes, while relaxing in a beautiful, nostalgic environment. You can also try freshly caught and grilled Biwa trout from the Fumoto River.

There are many events like Taiko drum performances to stir up the festival mood.
