  • The tour bus. I think it feels good go at a great falls close to the summer. Please note, however, do not receive cell phone reception area, so going to the personal. Off-season is fewer people. Radio beep people troubled by the failure of the car when it happens, we visited, there were, as I waited for people.

  • Yakushima Island, Japan more rain waterfall of the island are rich in water, so it was selected as the Japan shrine was powerful. We have visited, the weather is nice and relaxing under blue skies and overlooking the falls. There are are a lot of big rocks, sitting relaxed. Wanting to note it when going by car is hung on arrow dead end and turn right at the end to the waterfall. Did not write, but please turn left the parking lot.
