Hutuo River is a major river in northern China and an important member of Hai River system. It derives from Wutai Mountain in Shanxi province and flows through the Taihang Mountains to reach the North China Plain, where it meets the Fuyang River near the Xian County of Hebei province and continued flowing as Ziya River to the Pohai Bay. The total length of Hutuo River is about 587 kilometers and the watershed area is about 27.3 thousand square kilometers. It flows through the city of Shijiazhuang, the capital of Hebei province. The discharge is about 220 million cubic meters per year.
The Linji school (sect) of Buddhism, influential in China and Japan, takes its name from a Linji Temple that existed on the shores of the river. The sect was created by the Chan Buddhist monk Linji Yixuan, who joined the temple around 851. The Hutuo river is called Koda by Japanese adepts of the Linji school.
