Marli Avellino Temple Japan

Akita/Iwate: Last Day!

The last day of the road trip, we went to one last shrine (Takkoku no Iwaya Cave Temple), Gembikei Gorge,  and a beautiful spa (of which I have no photos, because we were essentially in the Onsen the entire time– no photos there!) before taking the long bus ride home.

Takkoku Temple:

Gembikei Gorge:

Overall, the trip was a fantastic experience and it was very nice to get out of the big city for a while.
