Odakimedaki Falls, Magome-Tsumago Trail, Japanese Alps

Odakimedaki Falls, Magome-Tsumago Trail, Japanese Alps

From Blade Runner metropolis Tokyo, to the ancient temples of Kyoto, to the impressive Japanese alps, Japan offers a diverse range of experiences.  This waterfall is located on the Magome-Tsumago trail in the Kiso Valley, and historical context is that it was an old route which once connected Tokyo and Kyoto during the 17th-19th centuries in the Edo Period.  It is a beautiful path, and quite diverse given it's only 8km, but with views of the Japanese alps, and back down through some valleys, it's a showcase scenic path.  The wooden staircase to the right is an odd and curious addition to the story the image tells within this enchanted forest.

Waiting patiently for just the right light to highlight this exquisite scene, including the unique purple flowers in the centre lit by some soft sun briefly passing over, I captured these falls in the context of their surrounding forest and flowers, conveying the subtle beauty and purity which parts of Japan can offer, unparalled by any other country I've visited.
