Zengoro Falls – Nagano

Posted in Nature, Places by tokyobling on July 5, 2010

While visiting Nagano north of Tokyo last month I drove up a narrow mountain road and came upon as small parking lot. Now, people don’t build parking lots in the middle of nowhere for no reason and naturally I stopped to check it out. Turns out it was the entrance to a small path leading down to a fall, Zengoro-no-taki, Zengoro Falls (善五郎の滝), one of several falls on the Koonogawa (Koono River). Not the most beautiful of falls, but nevertheless. Being a hardcore Tokyoite I take every opportunity to spend a moment extra in any sort of nature. Being drenched in a fine mist of clear mountain water didn’t make things worse either. If you are every up driving in the mountains, remember to take the time to stop at unexpected scenic places! There’s tons of hidden gems not marked on your GPS navigator. Enjoy!
