Naturally-carbonated soft water can rarely be found in most places. A mountain village located in the outback of Oku-Aizu in Fukushima Prefecture is one of the few locations where such extremely rare sparkling soft water occurs naturally. Its supply was cut off due to transportation problems in the Meiji period, but thanks to modern technology, it was made possible to extract the water again after a break of more than 100 years. Oku-Aizu Kaneyama Sparkling Mineral Water is produced with the aim of spreading this unique water across the globe and giving a boost to the town, which is suffering from aging and depopulation. As you take a sip, you will be surprised by the elegant, mild taste and subtle bubbles. Because it is smooth on the palate with a mild carbonation, it is also suitable for both cooking and use as a chaser. With its soft, elegant and unswerving flavor, Oku-Aizu Kaneyama Sparkling Mineral Water is an excellent product that represents Japan.
