Kiyomizu-no-taki is a waterfall in Ogi City of Saga Prefecture. Next to the waterfall is Kenryu-ji, a Buddhist temple built in 1627. The whole area is infused with incredible statues of Buddhist deities, shrines, and an immensely beautiful backdrop of lush vegetation. Once you reach the base of the waterfall, you’ll find a gazebo where you can relax or have a picnic. This is an idyllic setting to take time away from your busy schedule and unwind for a few hours.

I currently reside in Saga Prefecture. Before landing here in 2013, I’d been traveling to Japan since 2004 for both vacation as well as family visits. Since then, I’ve been fortunate to travel about and see much of this remarkable coutry. Although my interests are quite eclectic, I've always had a distinct fascination with old Japan. I suppose this began as a young boy brought up on a steady diet of samurai and ninja films. However, many years later, that interest deepened, surpassing romanticized curiosity. I have sufficient knowledge of Japanese history and culture and make it a point to visit various castles, temples, and other interesting placeswhenever I travel. It is my objective to be able to share some of that experience with you in hopes of inspiring you to visit a particular place or at least provide you with some peripheral knowledge about places you've already been. Safe travels and always remember: "The map is not the territory" - Alfred Korzybski
