Chiyoshi Falls



We accidentally saw this beautiful Chiyoshi Falls when we were heading to Towada Ko (Lake) or Lake Towada last September 5. We saw a lot of tourist buses along the side of the road and out of curiosity I asked my husband to pull over just to check what was going on there. And to my surprise I saw this beautiful water falls and a lot of tourists were taking pictures of it. Those Japanese tourists were carrying humongous lenses and tripods and unfortunately I forgot to bring my tiny tripod LOL (good for me, it's so shameful to bring mine while I'm seeing huge lenses hehehe) . This falls is part of the Oirase Gorge Stream where the water comes from Lake Towada.


Lake Towada is approximately one hour and a half from Misawa Air Base. I would love to go back here in Oirase Gorge to see this falls and its surrounding during Fall season where the leaves turn to autumn colors. Hmmm, I forgot it's Fall now LOL. But maybe I should wait a couple of weeks to wait until the leaves are totally turn to red and orange colors.

I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your blog. This has truly been heaven sent for us staying here in Misawa. It is a little intimidating trying to discover things on your own, but you make it so much easier.

Thank you for taking the time to put this blog together. It is appreciated.

Jen- thanks for dropping by

B B- thanks for visiting my blog, I'm glad you enjoy it. I created this blog not only to post photos but also to help other military families who are new here in Misawa. I know it's hard to go some places here if we don't have any pictures (as reference)and driving directions on where we're heading to. Some of my posts here are tips on how we will spend our weekends during our station here ;-)

Ang galing naman ng pagkakakuha mo duon sa water sa falls! Did you mount your camera on a tripod for this shot?
