Koyo season here has already ended, but luckily I still had some photos on my other camera to show. These are from a mini-hike up in the hills above Mori-town.

We got a little lost and needed some help from some friendly country-folk.

Waterfall #1. We didn't make it to #2 and #3 this trip. Next time...

The sign makes it look easy enough, but a landslide took out the trail past the first waterfall and we couldn't get past it.

Scenic firewood clearing on the side of the road up to the trailhead.

More Koyo color...

You've heard of Chia pets? Well in Japan they have Chia Lions!
We were both very surprised.
