  • By bus or tour, this famous fall is part of Yakushima's pride. The gorge is huge and one can clamber to the rocks and can get closer to the falls spray (depending on the guide or at your own risk)  more »
  • Admiring the power of the water at the foot of this waterfall is truly a sight that makes us feel vulnerable in the face of the power of nature not to be missed
