四王寺の滝

Shioji Taki Daytrip

Top_20120214094909.jpg

We got one last winter hike in before the rains came. The weather was beautiful with no wind and a big blue sky for our trip to Shioji Taki another frozen treasure located deep within the mountains near Mt. Hiko.

Our usual winter waterfall is Nansho ga Taki but recently this frozen icefall has been getting a lot of media, showing up on both TV and in the newspaper so we decided to go and check it out, we were so glad we did!!

Early Sunday morning we loaded up to truck and headed off expecting wintery driving conditions with signs telling us that we need chains but we very pleasantly surprised to find clear roads with only a few spots of ice.

After visiting the main shrine we started along the trail towards Oni Sugi so far the oldest and largest Cedar found in Fukuoka. About an hour along the trail a usually unused trail shot off to the left going up a small ravine with signs telling us that this was the way to the icefall.

After another 40 minutes or so we could start to see the icefall through the trees and soon after a beautiful curtain of ice was towering above us. After a shoot photo shoot we headed off to the side into the forest to have lunch before heading back down and onto our next destination, Oni Sugi.

Oni Sugi is around 1200 years old and about 38 meters tall making it the largest and oldest Cedar tree so far found in Fukuoka Prefecture. After a short beak of yummy “Tim Tams” under this monolith we headed back down the trail to complete a wonderful day.

With the rains the past few days I think that the icefall is almost done for this year but we will most definitely be heading there again next winter.

Happy Trails!
