Yuhino taki(Sunset waterfall)


【Kintaro's Falls】

Tributary of the Sakawagawa river, the fall falling on the Uchikawa 23m, the fall of the width 5m.
It is said that Kintaro is a waterfall with hot spring water.

※ "Kintaro" is a Japanese old story, a very famous person. Born in Minamiashigara today, he is a person who is said to have played with sumo wrestling with a bear, becoming an adult and exterminating alcohol drunko (demon).


It seems that the name of the sunset falls was named from "the beauty that shines on the sunset" or "the sun sets in the waterfall".

Crossing the river from the parking lot in the campground, as you climb the mountain path, a waterfall will come to the back of the small hall.

As I approached the waterfall, I felt that the space around me was filled with negative ions, surrounded by the sound that the water hit and a fine splash of water.
The closer you get to the waterfall, the better your feet will be, so be careful.

It is not a famous large waterfall, but instead you can get quite close, so the power of looking up is quite amazing!

Children who came to the campsite below were struck by a waterfall while having fun while playing in the water. (Adults who are watching have smoked)


Actually, I am performing a waterfall line where general people can participate, for the purpose of mental training, refreshment, health etc. (It is often introduced also on TV programs)

It is not like advertising a specific religion or doctrine, because the instructor guides it sideways, since there is little danger, it seems that one person or even a woman can feel free to join.
