Construction was completed in 1934 as part of the Otonashi-Iro facilities, an agricultural irrigation canal that enriches the rice paddies in the region. The water conduit section leading up to the circular diversion is said to be as long as 2 km. The outlet of the 2-kilometer-long water conduit section is located at the center of the circular diversion, where it gushes out like a spring.
Until the circular diversion was built in the early Showa period (1926-1989), union members were fighting each other over the distribution of water to the three main canals, causing disturbances, and water disputes were repeated every day.
In order to settle this water dispute, a circular diversion was built, which enabled the proper distribution of water. These water facilities are the crystallization of people’s wisdom and thoughts.
It is a local treasure that should be carefully preserved.
