Beautiful view!!!

The of Naruko Gorge Bridge is amazing. Especially in autumn! I think that's a great place to visit in Japan. I really loved the colours of that place.

Naruko Gorge 鳴子峽 was another must stop during our 2016 Autumn leaf-viewing Trip. We were awestruck by the waterfall, bridge, mountains, stream, rice field and multifarious colors, shapes, and sizes of autumn maple leave.

Let's get lost in the autumn leaves. Walk through the valley and praise Lord's creation. It's the perfect place to make a vow.

The bus from train station matched with the train arrival time. The beautiful gorge was painted with changing color of falling leaves. Several photographers were waiting to take a photo of the train entering the tunnel. I was lucky that it was around 10.55-11.00 when I was there and got the pictures.

Beautiful autumn foliage along the first part and last part of ofukazawa walking trail. Best during morning walk or around noon. Be mindful of the bus schedule and the train, unless you are driving a car then it won't matter. Don't miss the free "hell" foot onsen 400m from the train station. Unfortunately the Naruko walking trail remains closed since... More
