養老の滝 （Yoro no Taki）
Famous for a legend in which the water tastes like sake!
The waterfall is in Yoro Park, which boasts 3,000 cherry trees that bloom brilliantly in springtime and also has many maple trees that turn the park beautiful gradations of yellow, orange, and red. In the park is also the Site of Reversible Destiny, a conceptual art project developed by contemporary artist Shusaku Arakawa and poet Madeline Gins.
Near the park is the Yoro Hot Spring, where one can enjoy relaxing in a stone sauna or getting a massage!
