Tourist Spots

Yoro Waterfall
Yoro Town Tourism AssociationAt the end of the Yoro Park in Yoro Town, there is a waterfall of 4m wide and 30m high. The waterfall gives us a splendid view, but what reminds us when we hear the name of this waterfall is the name of the pub chain named the same, i.e. Yoro no Taki. Based upon the story of this fall water having changed to SAKE (wine), the pub chain took the name of this fall and named their pub. This pub chain is now enjoys good business. Is't it funny?
