It took 15 minutes to walk from Seiganto temple to Nachi Waterfall. Nachi Waterfall is the highest waterfall in Japan at 133m. It was simply overwhelming to see such a long waterfall with fresh air.

At the end of a long walk, I ate Tokoroten, gelidium jelly and shaved ice, while watching Nachi waterfall at Seiryotei cafe.

Nachi is popular for its Nachi black stone which is used to produce ink stone and the game of Go’s stone. I bought a Go board and stones at Mitsumine do. The white stone is made from a Hamaguri clam that is more than 20 years old.
