Frozen waterwheel（Kootta Suisha）
Waterwheel in the freezing cold
Near the Tanada (rice terrace) in front of the Takahara Kiri-no-Sato Rest Area, there is a waterwheel reproducing the old scenery of this area that once prospered as a post station along the Kumano Kodo. After a long spell of severely cold weather, the water becomes frozen and the waterwheel stops its motion.
40 min. on foot from “Kurisugawa”[栗栖川] bus stop of Meiko Bus and Ryujin Bus.
