This river is likely the bigget tributary on Otaki river.
The water volume is very much and the valley is very deep.
This point is very far from a base. It is difficult to reach
along with the stream. So I went to there using the forest road.
However, a distance is a long long way. I started at 2:30AM...
It was still sorround the dark.
A logging railroad covered the whole of Kiso area at the past time.
A rail of it remained in a forest. Some rail is abandoned on side
of a river. It seemed that a steam locomotive of Baldwin Locomotive Works
in the United States ran in this area.
[The crosstie fall into a decay. Only a rail remained.]
[A trace of logging railroad]
[A pellucid stream. I wish this situation keeps the same as now for good.]
[Japanese char which is called "Yamato Iwana".]
[A headwater is still deep into the forest]
[A bridge of logging railroad]
