Hello, this is Minamoto. The spring-like weather continued, but it rained, and the amount of water in the waterfall increased, making it powerful. The splashes that flew in are quite cold. Now that we are in April, we are introducing the birthstone, crystal. In particular, clusters with multiple crystals densely packed are recommended as interiors. Shosenkyo Gorge is a crystal, so why not put it at the entrance? Speaking of crystals, the Symbol Tree of Happiness (Crystal Tree of Happiness), which is located immediately after entering the entrance, is also made entirely of natural crystal. There is a rainbow crystal with a rainbow in the crystal tree of happiness, so please take a picture of it and use it as a talisman. All the staff are looking forward to your visit.
