Oirase Gorge FallThere are many falls and walking paths in Oirase Gorge.
Located near Towada Ko, one travels along a windy, narrow country road with many trees in the gorge. H. Kimura, in his younger days, has painted watercolor paintings of Oirase, Ichinoseki, Genbei, and Aomori mountain scenes. Some of Kimura's water color prints was given to me in Hirosaki Si(City). The fall shows an afternoon rush of waters after the rains that day in October.
