The autumn leaves in a spa town, Okutsu vol.2

Hi

We arrived at Okutsukei, a popular spot for the autumn leaves.
It was an eight-minute drive from Michi no eki Okutsu onsen.


Okutsukei is a ravine which is located the upper of Yoshii river, designated as a place of scenic beauty of Japan in 1932.
This ravine is characterized by huge rocks, a waterfall, and spectacular scenery.

This area used to be a gorge with Kakogan (granite), however, it has eroded by the stream, and it has changed its appearance.
Okutsukei is famous for Ouketsu (a pothole)’, a hole formed in rock which was made by a whirlpool.

It entertains visitors with its dramatic scenery all year round
For instance, you can see colourful flowers in spring, coloured leaves in autumn, snow-covered trees in winter.


The autumn leaves are at its peak in the middle of November.

On the way to Okustukei, we already saw the part of the autumn colours.
As we were getting close to there, we saw more beautiful scenery

This area was more crowded than I expectedIt was a good choice to visit here on weekday
It might be far more lively at weekends


There is a lovely bridge near the car park.

We had a good time at Okustukei.

Flowing water, beautiful leaves and a gentle autumn breeze made me relaxed.
What a fantastic place!


By the way, ‘The autumn leaves festival in Okutsu onsen’ takes place from the end of October to the middle of November.
During the festival, this area is lit up at night

You should come and feel the beauty of the nature
