I visited Kumano Nachi Taisha

Next day I finally got to famous “Nachi waterfall“, the real holly thing enshrined in “Kumano Nachi Taisha“.

I should take a movie.

It is a big waterfall.

Drop height is 133 meter.

Basically ancient and even modern Japanese respect all the nature.

It could be a rock, tree, waterfall, sea everything.

Long stairs to reach the bottom of the waterfall.

Of cause there is a shrine.

It is really beautiful, the art of the nature.

Now it is one of the world heritage.


Move up to  Kumano Nachi Taisha-

It is not so far from the waterfall.

10 min walk to reach the long stairs reach to the mountaintop, “Kumano Nachi Taisha”.

Please take care, the stairs are steep. Not to rush.

Last stairs to the top.

I was exhausted.

Artist, I am a painter, tend to stay in their studio and do not exercise.



Look at the main building.

It is really beautiful.

Many people were coming even elder one.

We have to get down the long way back. Woo.


Drink an original local soda

Jabara soda

Jabara soda

This is  “Javara cider” local soda.

It is made with a fruit called “Javara“, kind of orange.

Bitter and sour, and original flavor.
