Yoro Falls

Today, we got up early and had breakfast at Eternal Coffee across the street. Then, it was off to the train station!

Once there, we began the walk to the waterfall. We saw this statue along the way.

My mom bought some of the Yoro water because it has special healing properties, and her foot has been hurting her.

The spiders here are beautiful, but big enough to be creepy.

My mom didn’t think this bug was cute, but I thought it was beautiful.

As we were leaving, I looked up and thought these gourds looked very strategically arranged. It’s written bottom to top for some reason, but the gourds spell out Yoro in katakana. (ヨーロー)

We took the train back to Nagoya, and then we went to Kiharutei. We tried their macrobiotic karaage.
