In our adventure to seek out our first waterfall of the summer, we went through a small area known as Oseto. Oseto Town is located in the center of Nishisonogi Peninsula, offering chances for travelers to enjoy the beauty of nature and the peaceful oceanside scenery and beaches.
This 20 m-high cascade of water without a plunge pool is one of Nagasaki’s top 100 beautiful views! Tsugane means “Chinese mitten crab” and otoshi means “falling” in Japanese. When the crab goes down the river leading to the waterfall to lay its eggs, it often slips and falls onto the rock bed under the cascade. That’s why the falls are called Waterfall of Tsugane-otoshi.
Our roots will forever be from here, America, born and raised. Yet, life requires us to move more frequently than we care to count. Whether living stateside or abroad, you can always find us traveling somewhere. We scout out places that you only think you can dream of one day seeing and we seek out those that aren’t found in guidebooks. We then bring them to life here in our travel memos, so hopefully, one day you too can visit them or at least be able to live vicariously through us. This blog isn’t just about crossing off places from a bucket list. It’s about absorbing and learning how other cultures grow and fit into the same world that we do. Life is short and the world is big. Enjoy and get out there!
