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.

A nice trek after the boat ride. Worth it even in rain during December. Good trail yet some areas blocked, presumably due to storm damage. Would recommend regardless.

Really nice place but you have to be willing to cross some ropes and walk down some non paths to experience the nice place!

I spent 1,800 yen to participate the jungle trekking they provided. at first, I aboard a high-speed boat, and It takes about 30 minutes to reach the trekking point. The mangrove forest when could see at boat is very impressive.

現在では基本的に展望所からの眺めになってしまう。
船が出ているので、マリウドの滝、カンピレーの滝まではハイキング気分で行くことも可能だが、準備には注意する。
カンピレーの滝より先は往復することや道を考えると段違いにしんどくなるので相当な自信がなければ避けること。
船着き場からマリウドの滝までは亜熱帯の植物が繁茂し、西表島の自然を肌に感じるのに十分すぎるほどの魅力がある。ツルアダンやオオタニワタリなど南国情緒に溢れる道のりになるだろう。
またここまで来たらもう人踏ん張りしてカンピレーの滝を観ておきたい。
