Golden Waterfall: DoRyu

I visited one of rare waterfalls in Japan.
It is called DoRyu Waterfall, meaning Throwing-up Dragon…yes, wow, isn’t it?

DoRyu 吐竜

DoRyu in Japanese kanji character is 吐竜。

吐 is pronounced as Do [do].
It means both breathing out and throwing up.
The fundamental meaning must be strong gush of something coming out from a mouth.

You see the charcater is composed with 口 and 土.
口 is mouth.
土 is earth.

The second character 竜 [ryu:] means dragon.

Japanese language is easy!

Anyway, I want to show you beautiful Japanese autumn when all the mountains and waters turn red and gold.

I am so appreciated if you subscribe my youtube channel.

Wait for the next one!
