Sorry for not writing in a bit, I’m actually starting to run out of space in my WordPress account for pictures! I guess those things take up a lot of space. I found a free fix by hosting my pictures on Flickr. It’s kind of cool too because I can upload the photos even if I don’t put them in the blog. So you can click here to see all kinds of pictures starting now.
A few weeks ago I took a day trip by myself to Yoro Falls in Gifu prefecture which is just to the north of Aichi Prefecture, where Nagoya is located. I heard the waterfall was really pretty, especially in the Fall, because the leaves change color to a beautiful red color.
I was a little early for the red leaves, but I did get to see an absolutely beautiful day at the waterfall. The water is rumored to have healing powers and at the top they sell a carbonated cider that is made with the water from the falls. I highly recommend trying it.
I definitely recommend visiting Yoro Falls. It really is a wonderful place to relax. To get here, take the JR Tokaido Line from Nagoya Station to Ogaki Station (30 minutes, 740yen). When you get to Ogaki,you can transfer to a private rail line the rest of the way up (25 minutes, 400yen). Once you get there, there’s a clear walking map. It’s a small place so it’s hard to get lost.
