Me and friends took this path to look for onsen. The river has a nice natural view, despite the path was old. We went in winter, so can't comment much. If there is cherry blossom, i think it would be better.

We walked along the river. Nothing much to see, save a flock of ducks. There are houses on the banks but apart from that, I reckon winter is a quiet time for anything on the river.

Cormorant fishing was a rare experience! The magnificent views of Inuyama Castle is stunning in summer! How I wish I could visit this place on different seasons as well . . . it must be a beautiful sight to behold in autumn, winter, spring!
