This waterfall is located deep in the quiet mountains and is not a place that attracts many tourists.

この滝は静かな山奥にあって、あまり観光客が来る場所ではありません。

However, after hearing about the origin of this waterfall at a temple on the base of the mountain, me and my son thought it would be interesting to climb up.

けれどもこの滝の由来を山裾のお寺で聞いた私たち親子は、興味深いと思って登ってきました。

When a monk was practicing Shomyo, a kind of chanting that is the origin of Japanese songs, at this waterfall, the sound of the waterfall and the monk's voice resonated with each other, and the sound suddenly disappeared.

ある修行僧が声明(日本の歌謡曲などの源流となるお経のような歌)の練習をこの滝で行っていた時、滝の音と修行僧の声が共鳴し合ってふっと音が消えたという由来です。この謂れから、この滝の名が「音無(おとなし)の滝-Silent Fall」となったということでした。

At first we climbed up only out of curiosity, but my son, who would be entering elementary school in a few days, muttered, "Mom, the best time to travel is when we're getting ready," as he ruminated on the fact that it was the last day of our spring break trip. My heart shivered at the sight of my six-year-old son's back and the waterfall that now dropped water.

はじめは興味だけで登っていった私たちでしたが、数日後に小学校入学を控えた息子が、春休みの旅の最終日であることを反芻しながら、「お母さん、旅は準備の時が一番いいね」と呟いたのです。私の心は思わず震えました。6歳の息子の背中と、音を立てている滝の様子を見つめながら。

My son, who somehow manages to prepare himself to go to a place he does not understand called "school. I felt that this place, which somehow exists as a waterfall and being given an emotional name in the depths of the mountains, resonated with me.

小さな体でどうにかして学校というわからない場所へ行く覚悟をする息子、 情緒的な名をつけられながら、山奥でひっそりと滝として存在するこの場所が共鳴し合っていると感じられたのでした。
