I photographed a swan at the only swan observation spot in Ibaraki Prefecture and went to a suspension bridge famous for its beautiful autumn leaves.
I still have time, so I adventured through the snowy road aiming at Ryouka Falls and photographed Kamakura Light Up.
This light up is said to be a superb view you should see once in your life.
The way to the waterfall！！
There is a parking lot along the national highway, where you can park your car and walk along the promenade.
Normally, the distance from the parking lot to Ryoka Falls is about 0.7km, and it takes about 20 minutes one way. It will be a good walking path.
However, this time it took about an hour because the ice remained on the boardwalk as shown in the photo and there was snow.
A small waterfall “Fukyo Falls”
There is “Fukyo Falls” on the way. This waterfall is a small waterfall with a drop of 10 meters and a width of 3 meters, but it is beautiful. It is just right for a break! !
A waterfall like a dragon climbs”Ryuka Falls”
I arrived at last.
This waterfall is a representative waterfall in the Shiobara area.
The name of this place seems to be derived from the fact that the waterfall that flows in three steps looks like a dragon rising towards the heavens.
Approximately 60m in height, approximately 5m in width.
It is certainly thin and long and powerful and looks like a dragon.
The observation site is surrounded by concrete to prevent falling rocks, so you can observe the waterfall relatively safely.
However, if you go in the winter, it would be better to have equipment such as trekking shoes.
Yunisigawa Onsen Kamakura Festival ！！
Kamakura is a house made of snow.
At the Yunisigawa Onsen Kamakura Festival, the main venue is lined with large Kamakura, and many mini-Kamakura are lit up along the riverbank. It’s a fun and photogenic festival.
The night view here is also certified as a Japanese night view heritage.
You can BBQ in the kamakura!!
Reservation is required, but you can eat BBQ and hot pot in the kamakura.
Time is between 11:00 and 15:00, 1500 yen per person
You can book from 2 people.
Yunisigawa Onsen’s small kamakura！！
This place has been certified as a Japanese night view heritage site and has also been selected as one of the “superb views you want to see once in your life”.
About 1,000 small kamakura made by locals are illuminated by fantastic light.
Lights from 17:30 to 21:00.
If it snows, it looks like a more mysterious landscape. All the light of the kamakura is lit by candlelight.
I think it would be very tiring to light about 1000 candles. “Thank you for making this beautiful view,” I want to tell them.
It was a satisfying trip to explore the waterfall and see the wonderful light up of Kamakura.
I also went to a ski resort called Hunter Mountain. However, the snowboard was broken on the day and I couldn’t take pictures. I have an active camera now, so I would like to report next time.
