The well was dug by the local inhabitants, and until recently, when water mains were connected to each house, it was used as the primary water source, including for drinking water.
Water was drawn from here on the first day of the new year, and newborn babies were washed using this water, so it had an important place in the daily lives of the local people. Today, the surrounding area has been made into a courtyard, and the trees form a pleasant shady canopy.
Nakōga Well was designated as an important monument (historical remains) of Kin township on April 28, 1994.
