Hello everyone.
I'm Teppi, a travel writer.

This is the eighth article.
I will introduce the autumn leaves of Hananuki Gorge from Ibaraki Prefecture, the same as Fukuroda Falls introduced in the fourth article🍁

A superb view of the suspension bridge and autumn leaves, have you seen it ?

It is a photo that is frequently featured on Instagram and travel magazines😳

Yes ! The place where the photo was taken is Hananuki Gorge, which I will introduce this time !
Along with the previously introduced Fukuroda Falls, this is one of Ibaraki Prefecture's representative fall foliage spots📸

There is a hiking trail along the Hananuki River where you can enjoy the beautiful autumn leaves😊

A particularly famous autumn foliage spot is called ❝Shiomi Taki Tsuribashi❞🍁
This is a place where you can take pictures of the bright red maple and the suspension bridge😎

The autumn foliage season is bustling with tourists.

Then you can go to the festival grounds where stalls and shops are lined up🤗
