It was a nice day for walking, with perfectly clear sky on the second day of Golden Week. A beautiful lake welcomes you at  just the beginning of the trail from Shiramaru Station.

After walking through the bridge over the lake, you will find a nice cafe called Earth Garden. It was full of visitors, haha.

Perfect weather. It was quite relaxing to walk in the forest of tender greenery.

The trail once crossed a big avenue, which lead to a campsite called America Camp Village.

The message board says "America Camp Village is on this way".

I went through the winding road.

Winding and winding...

But my aim is not the camping. Let's go my way.

I found some artificial waterfalls on the way. This is one...

I reached the valley area of Unazawa.

This area has Unazawanoyontaki, which literally means "Four Waterfalls of Unazawa".

There is no roads of concrete or anything from here. This mountain path takes you to four beautiful waterfalls.

Ootaki Waterfall.

 

Movie of Ootaki Waterfall. By the way, the last waterfall called Fudoutaki Waterfall was so difficult to approach that I gave up...

Ootaki Waterfall and moss. Awesomely beautiful and so relaxing. Thanks for this amazing moment, Japan.
