Cool and pleasant even in hot summer weather. We visited after heavy rains so there was more flow and more spray than usual, but it made for good photos and a fun stop.

Great place for photo taking. My understanding is that this waterfall place is form during one of the volcano eruption. Worth going for a nice desktop background picture.

With nice view, easy parking, and able to walk behind water fall. Generally speaking 30-60 mins is sufficient for the visit.

After walking a few stairs you quickly see this very nice waterfall. The good thing is that you can walk behind it if you a bit in shape. There is some spray so good idea to bring something to protect your camera. You can make...More

It's a nice walk along the river and waterfall. The waterfall is beautiful and the ability to walk behind the waterfall is nice. Don't expect a hike though, it won't take you more than 15 minutes in total

It is not a large fall. I would recommend a visit to this wonderful fall. If you come during summer or autumn, have a picnic there. You can get behind the fall because of a deep cave behind the fall. Beautiful settings.

Very nice place to see the backside of the waterfall. As I went on a weekday morning, there were few people, and I was able to take a lot of pictures of beautiful autumn leaves and waterfall. It is a place to go absolutely. 滝の裏側を見れるとても素敵な場所。平日の朝にいったこともあり、人も少なく、綺麗な紅葉と瀧の写真をたくさんとることができました。

This is a popular spot for tourists so expect plenty of other people trying to take selfies and group shots. There is also a parking lot if you have a car. The waterfall itself is about a 3 minute walk from the lot.

If you like walking (very short walk) and waterfalls, then this is a good place to visit. You must pay 200yen to enter the area, but this money is used by the local town for the upkeep of the track and surrounding area. There is...More
