... it was soon time to return to the bus. Kegon Waterfalls, one of the most famous waterfalls in Japan, was our next destination. With views of Mt Nantai, we waited with scores of schoolchildren to take the 100 m elevator down to the observation deck. Mist sprayed from the 316 foot spring-fed waterfall. It was breath-taking.

... own santoku knife and watched while the guy sharpened and wrapped it for me. It's made out of Japanese Carbon which is incredibly sharp (and high maintenance but I think it will be worth it!).
