  • Taxi tour with guide provided the way to view this out of place fall. However it is a majestic and not to be missed spot to see.  more »
  • The whole view can be found in the observatory, which is a little far away. It's a little far, but please go. A line of water flows through the forest is linked to the world of Princess Mononoke.

  • An alright waterfall. Wish you could get a bit closer, but still quite a massive waterfall from far. A short walk from the parking lot.
  • Lovely place, please go through the cafe route not the other (dead end one)
