Yoro waterwall, one of the best 100pure water of Japan

by Hiromi - TripleLights travel specialist

Can you guess why this river has a gourd shape?

Yoro waterwall, located in Gifu-Prefecture, is one of my favorite spots especially to visit in summer. Yoro is famous for the waterwall and the pure water called, "Kikusui-no-mizu" literally meaning 'Water of chrysanthemum. It is said that this water is effective for curing a disease and keeping us young! In ancient day, people used to bring the water using a gourd.

I am not sure whether this story is true or not, but this place is good for a half-day trip.

This waterfall is also known as a training place for esoteric Buddhism practice. Even today some trainees visit this waterfall to do a special practice by sitting under the waterfall, to regain a special power, to purify themselves etc.

Fumiko was amazing! Her communication prior to our visit was very thorough. She planned the day that catered for our needs. She really took into consideration my children's ages and what they would like and they did enjoy the day. She also helped us with other issues regarding the rest of our trip which was very useful. Were very happy to have her as a guide.

22 hours ago Traveler: Pritam -   Tour Guide: Mitsuru

Apart from fitting into my demanding and changing wants of covering many areas in just 1 ½ days, Mitsuru did a great job as a tour guide. Right when I landed in Haneda, he had a file ready for me with my hotel information and train map. When I left from the hotel (even though he was not responsible for me that day), he made sure that I have safely reached airport. Also made me comfortable riding...

Mayumi was prompt, energetic , informative, and flexible enough to maneuver slight changes we made to our itinerary. We wanted to hire her another day but she was booked up for the rest of the month. We had a terrific day with her! Will definitely have our friends use her when they go to Tokyo.
