Oirase gorge/Ручей Оирасе

Every resident of Aomori prefecture has been to the Oirase gorge at least once: it is a mandatory field trip. At first sight, there is nothing special about it, just a stream of cold water located in a forest. The place, however, has a special mood to it, it is very relaxing here, such that the noise from cars passing by gets drowned in the ambient sounds of forest. It is a very popular tourist place, there are buses that go up and down the road, and even though you may be surrounded by a lot of people, there is still a feeling of a one-to-one connection with nature.

Каждый житель префектуры Аомори побывал на ручье Оирасе хотя бы раз: это часть школьной программы. Вроде кажется что ничего особенного, просто ручей в лесу. Тем не менее, в этом месте какое-то свое, особое настроение. Появляется умиротворенность, и даже шум машин проезжающих мимо теряется в звуках леса и воды. Это место популярно среди туристов (как иностранных, так и японских). По дороге вдоль ручья ездят автобусы, но даже среди большого количества людей не теряется ощущения того, что ты наедине с природой.





There are some waterfalls along the way, and almost all of them have names, but I did not get any of those.

В ручье попадаются и водопады, и все они имеют имена, но я их имен не записывал.




These pictures were taken at the end of October and most of the leaves had already fallen down. Lack of leaves on trees made it easier for the warm sun to get through the trees.

Эти фотографии были сделаны в конце октября, и большинство листьев уже опали. Зато было меньше преград для уже не такого теплого осеннего солнца.

The stream falls into lake Towada, here it is on the picture. Lake Towada is the biggest crater lake in Japan.

Ручей впадает в озеро Товада, вот оно на фотографии. Озеро Товада является самым большим кратерным озером в Японии.
