I went to the Yourou-keikikoku to see Autumn leaves.
It was very fun adventure so I want to recommend you.
Also there weren’t foreigner’s tourist.
And mostly staff of around Yourou-keikoku don’t speak English so it will be good practice to speak Japanese 🙂
You will find Japanese things you’ve never seen.
What is Yourou-keikoku?
It’s called Yourou-keikoku for around Yourou river area in Chiba.
There are many waterfalls in Yourou-keikoku so very popular place with spiritual energy 🙂
Let’s go to Yourou-keikoku!
You need to go to Goi station by JR line,
and then take a local train called Kominato line or Satoyama trolley train to go Yourou-keikoku station!
It’s a Kominato train.
It was very old style but very pretty.
And you can enjoy beautiful rural scenery by the train.
It’s Yourou-keikoku station.
You can feel like time traveled to old Japan.
And you take a bus to go Awamata water fall.
The bus is in front of the station.
Then,I got off at the bus stop that one before the last stop.
A driver taught me it will be better to go around water falls
because there are resting area, washroom also bus stop on the top of Awamata waterfall.
I went through local area.
But there are small directions.
You might find some unmanned shop.
You will find some stairs to go down.
In to forest*
There are all paved road so easy to walk around river.
It was beautiful sunny day but leaves didn’t change color yet.
Finally I found the first water fall.
