Use the rikaichan popup dictionary or your favorite reference tool with my transcription below the photo if you need help reading this poster promoting municipal drinking water.  It features a popular former sumo wrestler touting the taste and quality of tap-water.  Can you pronounce the three character compound in the first line, which includes the kanji for ‘water’ twice?  If you can, you’ll know how to say ‘tap-water’ in Japanese.

The numbers below refer to the kanji I’ve transcribed below the photo, and correspond to their order of appearance in both Heisig’s Remembering the Kanji and Kanji in Context.
