Deep in the mountains of Mie Prefecture, about three hours by car from Kyoto. Ninja There are scenic spot that people the know as the place where the training. “Akameshijuhachitaki”. In spite of the fact that is also used in the novel and film of the important scenes, name recognition is low, because the tourists do not have too much, just the atmosphere, such as unexplored region. But the coming season while watching the autumn leaves and waterfalls, this area the best of the season will come to enjoy a walk of about three hours.
Giant salamander is the entrance to the wilderness
Cloudy timing visited the typhoon. Or cloudy so only typhoon this year, has continued or raining.Because it was such a timing, I did not expect much, and I is unwillingly does not matter, here.
Akameshijuhattaki have valley Hokachikai to manage, you pay what will become conservation cooperation expenses of adult alone 400 yen to Iriyama. However, here is the point. This entrance is had become like a small aquarium, giant salamander around the world have been breeding. In this aquarium, there are insanely big giant salamander. It also, if you are assimilated into the rock of the aquarium, not much notice and not Korasa the eye. Suddenly you can enjoy Aha experience. Cute went dry, while first surprise in this amphibian, and exit the aquarium, is a large natural.
There is a waterfall about me or this even
Very beautiful river. Iukotonashi the beauty of the water flowing. River alone but do you shine photo, the longest Kaochidani until I there is also a course of about 120 minutes from here, roughly recommended until hewn waterfall of one-way 90 minutes.
Waterfall, of course, there is also a superb view point of megaliths such as eight tatami rocks and hundred-mat rock, do not be tired to walk. Maybe, It might have also giant salamander in the river, you might even meet a ninja in training if you are lucky. But probably it will not have the ninja.
And while photo is the scenery of the summer, it It is the colored leaves from now, autumn leaves. I saw in the Toka HP, but here is a photo of autumn leaves and the waterfall is too beautiful. And November is also the fantastic atmosphere there is also a light-up event of the night. Although not a major, because it is inevitable place that now become major, loss and preemption is no.
By the way, why and say or “red-eye”, When you come to the “small-angle of the role (En Ozunu)” it is training of magic who, Acala appearance riding a cow. That’s right with the fact the eyes of cattle at that time was red as the “red-eye”.
