Ayugaeri Falls・鮎返りの滝

2015.10.05 (Mon)


Named for the Japanese sweetfish (ayu) which are unable to swim any further upstream and are forced to return (kaeru), Ayugaeri Falls is a small waterfall found in Ueshi, Yurihama, upstream of the Jūmanji River. With steep rock walls on each side, this three-stepped waterfall and its surrounding scenery create a stunning view. It is said that children used to splash and play there due to the cool air and shade provided by the area, even in the heat of a midsummer’s day.
