Watagataki Waterfalls, with a maximum drop of 32 meters (105 feet), is the main attraction among the Tedori Gorge along the River Tedori-gawa in Hakusan City, Ishikawa Prefecture. It is called Wata-ga-Taki (Fall of Cotton) as it looks like gushing out fluffy pieces of cotton wool. Walking about 150 meters (164 yards) along the promenade from the parking lot, you'll find an observatory to view the forge and the waterfall. You can also go down to the bottom to view the fall up close, but watch your step carefully as there are steep stairs and a place with bad footing or two.

Really lovely. Worth the drive from Kanazawa, especially since there's other things to en route. A nice place to sit and enjoy the spray for an hour or so.

It is a waterfall in Hakusan City 😊 A cool place with few people, a place where it is not crowded, combined with record heat and corona ... I was surprised at the size and power of the waterfall 👀💦 It is a waterfall about 5 minutes on foot from the parking lot, but from the top I thought "Watagataki waterfall is that?" And saw the waterfall flowing. There was a big waterfall next to it that was flowing down as I approached it ... "Oh, this is ⁉️👀💦" 😆 There is a staircase wide enough for one person to pass through, and the waterfall You can get down to the jar 👍🏻 It's difficult to pass between someone who goes down and one who goes up, so making a concession 🙋🏻‍♀️ It's quite easy to get down in a while, but climbing up may be pretty hard (masking 😅 There are not so many steps (about 30 steps?), but each step is expensive, and I feel that I have to do my best to do it 😆 But maybe women in their 60s are also on vacation Since I was there, I think anyone can go at my own pace 🙆🏻‍♀️ Relief It's dancing and it's a natural mist ❣️ It's in the mountains, so it was about 3 degrees lower than the heat in the city 😌 It was a number 😅 Well, this power is popular ~ ✋ 🏻 lol The river water was emerald green and it was very beautiful 🥰 There were many people after taking negative ions and taking pictures, so it's about time Anyway, I got tired of going up the stairs on my way back 😅 With a considerable amount of shortness of breath and sweat ... I also encountered a snake on the way 🐍 💦 There is an observation deck about 150 m away, walking 🚶‍ ♂️ You can see the waterfall from a distance.
