I had read about this place, but one needs to have a car to get there. As you drive, you will come to a signage showing the place to park the car. I was alone sitting by the creek and watching the Sakura. It was a great experience away from the crowds.

Along a river this is a stunning walk. It is particularly lovely in spring and autumn. Half way along you can have tea at a rustic establishment suspended over the river. Dip your feet in the clear water and have them nibbled by tiny hungry fish.

The water level can rise rapidly if it rains a lot. This can even flood the trail and you will be stranded! Beautiful on a nice day, but steer clear if it is raining. You wouldn't want emergency rescue personnel to have to come and get you! Helicopters aren't cheap to operate you know!!
