This river was flood on autumn in 2013, because of typhoon.

Katsuragawa River and Togetsukyo Bridge

2 months after, appearance was completely restored. It was great.
(I just watched the situation of flood on TV, at Zamami island.)

I took breakfast at the tea shop where I could see Togetsukyo Bridge.




This is very famous restaurant, “kichyo”, located along Katsuragawa River.
I won’t go here entire life…

The poster at the front of Hozo-in was too beautiful,
I entered here.
Here was the best or 2nd cleanest temple of this autumn.

Here was famous for beautifulness of moss, but then moss was covered with fallen leaves.
However, it was also beautiful.

Finally, I ate Udon of Kujo-negi and duck.


As desserts, I ate rolled Matcha cakes and coffee.


Doing solo travels are becoming increasingly interesting!
I cannot qut.
