Kawazu 7 waterfalls and Kawazu onsen

I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately. I think it’s because of winter and work. And lack of exercise, mostly not being able to swim. And having been sick with a cough and cold. And fatigue. Feeling so tired all the time. I could sleep forever.

I long for warmer days and sunshine and beaches.

I don’t blog as much lately either, which I miss. It’s nice to just to recap and reflect on memories etc.
I’ve spent the last couple of weekends at home, trying to sort through loads of photos. So many places I’ve been. Lots of memories. Lots of photos.
I’m craving summer to be here so I can fill up my summer with more adventures and activities.
I even went and bought a pair of hiking boots yesterday and new socks.

Here are some photos last year, on a day trip to Kawazu 7 waterfalls (Kawazu nanadaru). A nice leisurely walk through a trail which leads to 7 different waterfalls. There’s also a really nice outdoor onsen park by a river (entry fee required). I very much think water is essential to my being, my spirit.

This is the waterfall that we took a dip in. The water was FREEZING and it was in May.

But there are several hot springs you can enjoy by the riverside. Cossies are required. And they are mixed gender.
