Kamuiwakka Reisui water is natural spring water said to be the water of the gods (literally “kamuiwakka”).
Snow from the large snowy gorge of Mt. Yotei, also called Ezo Fuji, became underground water, and after many years, finally gushed out into the Izumi, Makkari area.
Over these many years, Mt. Yotei, in a sense a natural large-scale factory, added a perfect balance of minerals to the water, creating the world’s finest quality mineral water.
Reisui water is delicious natural mineral water preserved for life through bottling techniques that further polish the purity of the spring water here.
* Please be cautious of lookalike long-lasting drinking water products.
Our long-lasting drinking water has currently been confirmed drinkable for up to 13 years thanks to the fact that we use pure spring (natural spring) water that is naturally asceptic, and thanks to our special bottling methods. Starting 8 years ago, up to this day, we have allowed the water quality of the water we produced in the year 2000 to be analyzed by public authorities, and this water has passed all drinking water standards. 13 years have passed since this water was produced, but the water is still drinkable to this day. Many other similar competitors’ products have neither had the number of years passed since production checked, or had their water quality analyzed by public authorities, so we hope that you please take care to be cautious of lookalike products.
Water itself naturally has no taste or smell.
The reason why water has a taste is not because the water you drink is pure H2O, but because it contains minerals, etc. Natural mineral water actually contains over 500 different substances, including bedrock minerals, moss and algae microbes, and much more.
In addition, there are two kinds of water, soft and hard, which are categorized based on mineral content (calcium, sodium, potassium, etc.). The hardness of water is one of the main factors that decide the water’s taste.
The definition of delicious water is as follows based on the findings of a study conducted by Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare’s “Research Society for Delicious Water”.
Our Kamuiwakka Reisui water is produced using green, environmentally-friendly automated processes from water procurement up to bottling, allowing us to provide the deliciousness of Hokkaido water directly to our customers.
It is stated in the Tokyo Area Regulation on Measures to Handle Difficulties in Returning Home during Emergencies that each home should keep a 3 day supply of water, 3 liters for each per person per day.
A typical Japanese household has an average of 4 members. Six 500ml bottles come to a total of 3 liters. 6 bottles X 4 people is 24 bottles total. This comes to exactly one case of 500ml bottles per day, so each family should keep 3 cases stored.
The origins of the name Makkari come from the name for Mt. Yohei, also referred to as Ezo-Fuji, in the traditional Ainu language of Hokkaido, “Makkari Nupuri”, which means “the beautiful mountain surrounded by a river”.
The true symbol of Makkari can only be said to be its magnificent and beautiful Mt. Yohei. There are a number of various natural springs located on Mt. Yohei at a height of about 250-260m.
In particular, there are 7 springs located around the mountain base area spanning from Makkari to Niseko, all of which are made up of underground water that has passed through the fragmented rock layer of Mt. Yohei to then spring up past the boundary created by andesitic rocks at the ground level.
