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.
