Landslides and heavy snow made it !

The steps of the trail to the lookout to see the waterfall called "Garou-no-taki" in Shimamaki Town had been swiped off by the land slides and avalanches again and again and the route had been changed again and again.
I found some black snails on the trail to the waterfall but some of them were stomped by the tourists because this dark color made it difficult to recognize the existence.
Some blue flowers of wild hydrangea could be seen beside the trail. It took approximately thirty thirty minutes to reach the riverside and the lookout.
