On Saturday I went up to Naruko, took about 2 hours by train. The leaves were just starting to change colors, but it was a beautiful day anyway.

In Naruko there is a "scenic 100m-deep gorge", and we walked the 4km trail along the river, going and returning, so total of about 8km.

here are some photos:

if you look closely, i'm standing on the bridge in the photo above (click on the photo it see it enlarged)

kokeshi dolls are famous in this area of Miyagi Prefecture, and above is a giant kokeshi doll oustide one of the many kokeshi shops.

as usual more photos on my flickr site, click here for more photos from Naruko.


  1. Hi Tanya! Once again your pictures are great! The scenery is beautiful. It is so nice being able to keep up with your travels. Using the flickr site is nice,too, to be able to see them in a slide presentation.

    Keep it coming!
