LAKE TOWADAKO

 We went to Lake Towadako in Aomori prefecture and walked along a mountain torrent named Oirase Keiryu.

 十和田湖の西湖畔を歩き、奥入瀬渓流に沿って歩きました。

Then we went to Nenokuti and started to walk along Oirase Keiryu.
 
We found very small flowers named Tochiba Ninjin.

There were a few water falls along this mountain torrent.

  4. 昔昔、私も行きましたよ! 十和田湖遊覧をしてから、奥入瀬渓流を歩きました。思い出がよみがえります。渓流は清涼感で満ちていますね。

    コメントありがとうございました。 月には季節や見え方による日本独特の風流な呼び名がありますね。(日本っていいなぁ。)

    1. stardust 様 おはようございます。 思い出がよみがえり良かったです。
       今回は十和田湖の西湖畔を歩きました。奥入瀬もシーズン前なのでほとんど観光客はいませんでした。
       日本の人の心の繊細さを少しでも受け継いでいきたいです。

  6. 大学時代に友と東北を旅行した時に、十和田湖、奥入瀬も訪れました。夏の奥入瀬の美しさは今も心にしっかりと焼き付いています。
    赤目四十八滝に昨年いきましたが、滝はとくに写真を撮っていると無我の境地になれますね。

    1. Keiko 様 こんにちは。 旅に行く目的の一つは非日常的な物事に出会いに行く事だと思います。
       何かに心を奪われて無我の境地になれる時はとても貴重な時間だと思います。 これが忘れられ無くて、人は旅に出るのでしょうか。
       我が家の近くに赤目不動があります。赤目四十八滝とは、五色不動を思いおこさせて呉れます。
       きっと素晴らしい滝だった様ですね。

    私も十和田湖畔を歩き、奥入瀬に沿って歩いたことがあります。当時は忙しかったので、三沢空港からレンタカーで往復し、なんと日帰りの旅でした。
    滝の写真が涼しげですね。ヤマトリカブトはあの猛毒のトリカブトの一種ですか?

    1. World Heritage 様 こんにちは。日帰りの旅とはスゴイですね。勿論JALで往復でしたか。
       三沢は上北地方、もっと南は三戸と八戸を合わせて三八地方、これを一まとめにして三八上北、天気予報で言う三八上北という地域が今回の旅行でようやく頭に入りました。
       トリカブトは細かく分けると30種類もあるそうですが、ヤマトリカブトはその代表格の様です。
