Waterfall

Threesomes. Every guy wants to have one, but should it happen, I'm sure most people don't quite know what to do. This blog is not about any sort of menage a trois, but is instead about Japan's three most beautiful waterfalls.

Nachi Falls situated in southern Wakayama-ken (Province of Wakayama) is stunning. It has the Hiryu shrine situated at the foot of the waterfall. It's one of my favourite photos...



Kegon Falls, located in Tochigi-ken (Province of Tochigi) on the Daiyagawa River that flows from Lake Chuzenji-ko.

While I do have a brilliant colour photo of Kegon Falls in 1991, it's locked up in a very nice frame. This photo shows the Falls prior to an earthquake in the 1940s that changed the way it looks today. In the late 1990s, another earthquake shrunk it to its current size of 97 meters. Click HERE for more info on the waterfall.


Fukuroda Falls, off the Takigawa River in northeastern Ibaraki-ken (Province of Ibaraki).

Its width is 73 meters, and is a cascading type of waterfalls with a total height of 120 meters. It was a real bugger to photograph for me, as I could only get a few of the steps in the frame. Since I know when I'm licked, click  HERE for a nice site with a couple of excellent photos.
