On the way to the spring water spouting, there are some Ojizosan. This might be a place for gods of the mountain through the ages.

There are many people drawing water from Mt.Yoteizan. It is so famous that many people not only from local but also Sapporo or Hakodate, bring some plastic bottles by each one, draw the spring water. This is very delicious and deal in convenience stores or supermarkets.
