There once was a rest place called Shimizu-no-tateba just down the hill from Yaho Tenjin-no-yashiro Shrine. This area boasts one of the best water springs in Yaho and it is said that in summer, people treated travelers coming and going on the Kōshū Highway under the burning sun with soba and sōmen noodles dipped in the cold-water spring.
