A very impressive waterfall next to Nachi shrine , 133 meters high , the highest in Japan . Going down 150 stairs , you reach the best view point . Also can be seen from the hill of the shrine . Admission free.

Fantastic - amazing end to our hike. You can get right up close and even drink from the source (in your own special dish).

The waterfall can be accessed by bus (easy, most economical). We took the bus from Kii Katsuura station but instead of going directly to the waterfall (Nachi no Taki mae bus stop), we wanted to experience a small part of the sacred trail so we...More

The view was just breathtaking, so beautiful and spiritual. The rock road was hard to walk but I enjoyed the historical beauty. I found people don't speak English there that much but they are really king and nice. Most of them understand some English words....More

This is a spectacular waterfall in great settings. The combination of the Nachi Taisha shrine is fantastic. A must see location.

There are many interesting things to see in this area. These waterfalls figure in the top ones. It's worth a walk at the end of your trip to check them out as you walk down from the shrines.

Very impressive to see Japan's tallest waterfalls, right along the 3rd Grand Shrine, Nachi Taisha. You can even walk down near the water to get a better feel and view.

Nachi Waterfall is a bit off the beaten track and not close to any shinkansen lines so it's a bit of a trip to get there from Osaka or Kyoto at 4.5 hours each way. The area is essentially the end of the Kumano Kodo...More

Even though it require 3 hours JR from Wakayama plus 20min bus to the Temple, but I still recommend you to getting off from the "大門坂Daimon-zaka" bus stop, because it could make you enjoy the full refreshing soul journey, go through the ancient mountain route,...More
