  • 步道很天然,有點坡,土路保持路徑原貌,接近瀑布時的步道跨上岩塊,但鋪了一種軟軟的黑色墊子,從土路銜接過來一點都不衝突,一樣非常好走,上坡也不覺得累,而且我去的當天下雨喔,一點都不滑,走很安心又愜意。廟宇、楓紅、流水,風景很好,空氣舒爽,如果有機會,想要晴天再去一次。 
  • We have friends in Japan and visited my friends tour. Seok around many military facilities, many standing is prohibited. Taking photo easily and police came and will be taken to the police station in a "serious" so caution is required. Passport copy, erase bad photos and viewing pictures in digital camera seems to end. Forget the passport was "questioned" in Japan is so on! Without mercy karakkaze winter, wind chill is minus 10 ° C or less. Incidentally spring and late autumn are the number of people, the scenery is so beautiful. Around the entrance to restaurants, cafes, etc. Turned down my aunt's restaurant wishing to smoke and then let's have some in the pedestrianized restaurant. First of all means in Japan and there is a temple. Scenery read aloud sutras with incense kindled is the same as Japan. Riding in the interest of time, only went to the observation deck, on the other, it falls, old temples around and would efficiently explore and go on the tour because it takes two days and enjoy the Valley course is slowly watching all.
