Located in the northwest of Iriomote Island, this huge sliding waterfall in the jungle attracts trekkers and nature lovers. The 20m-high waterfall has two gentle cascades stretching 50m wide and 200m long and ending in a round pool with 130m in diameter. The name Mariyudu means 'round backwater' in the local language.
Take a cruise boat at the mouth of the Urauchi River and go upstream for 10km in the mangrove forests inhabited by tropical birds rarely seen elsewhere. The 45-minute walk on a nature trail takes you to the waterfall, and another 250m to a different waterfall. En route, there is a lookout offering good views of the waterfall, and you might see giant lizards (max 30cm), which is a national special natural monument.
