A feudal lord of Kawagoe named Matsudaira Izunokami Nobutsuna gave an order to his vassal, Yasumatsu Kinemon, to build Nobidome Canal by diverting water from Tamagawa waterworks (Kodaira City, Tokyo) in 1655 to supply drinking water to pioneers of Nobidome plateau. Currently, there is a walking trail at the periphery of the canal which is a valuable trail where people can relax and enjoy nature. Overall length is approximately 24 km and it supplied water to paddy fields in Muneoka, Shiki City.
