Yoro Valley

So, I headed across to Yoro Valley, pretty famous around these parts for it's very beautiful autumn leaves, and about an hour's drive from where I stay. Obviously, it isn't autumn, but I just wanted to check out the area for future reference.

The gorge itself is long and at times spectacular. At one end is the sometime spectacular Awamata falls, an absolute jewel in the Chiba waterfall crown. The riverside walkway winds for a couple of kilometres down towards the village of Oikawa, and there are several additional falls to admire, including the Maboroshi falls, which has a very inviting pool to one side.

It was a nice walk, but obviously one that will be improved when the trees are in their autumn garb, and with perhaps a massive downpour just a couple of hours before my arrival to show off the falls. I will definitely return later in the year.
