Janokuchinotaki Falls, Yakushima-cho

5.0
#9 of 13 in Nature in Yakushima-cho
Pack a swimsuit and hike up a narrow mountain trail that leads to Janokuchinotaki Falls, cascading from a granite monolith into an emerald pool. This tranquil spot hidden within a subtropical forest lies off the beaten paths, so don't lose the sight of the pink tape and be careful not to wander off the road. You will have to cross the river several times and go through a swampy area, so wear sturdy shoes. Consider visiting the nearby hot springs on the way back.

  • I did many of the non-peak hikes in Yakushima and along with the deep forest part of Yakusugiland, the hike to this waterfall was my favorite. It is a 4 hours round trip and the scenery keeps changing...  more »
  • Worth a visit is the waterfall by climbing about three hours necessary to walk is high. Along the way, Mossy rocks and trees are very soothing. Waterfall flowing over a large rock and magical landscapes.
