Awamata Falls in Yorokeikoku (Yoro Valley)

There is a beautiful valley named  Yorokeikoku (Yoro Valley) near Shichirigawa Onsen Inn. It takes just 10-15 minutes from Shichireigawa Onsen Inn. I recommend you to visit this valley when you visit Shichirigawa Onsen.

There are footpaths in Yorokeikoku (Yoro Valley). You can enjoy Walking along the river.

One more special spot to visit is Nomizo Falls. There is a unique tunnel for the river.  It was made approximately 350 years ago for agricultural use. It is located approximately 30 minute distance from Shichirigawa Onsen by car. There are quite attractive places, right?
