Look behind the waterfalls without getting wet!
Tsukimachi-no-taki (Waiting for the Moon Falls), a pair of waterfalls with a drop of 17 meters (56 feet) and a width of 12 meters (39 feet), flow down from the overhanging rock and provide the space where you can walk right behind the falling waters. The falls, therefore, is also called Ura-mi-no-taki (Looking Backside Falls). If you want, you can also try ascetic practice by sitting under the falls. The falls are usually called Meoto-daki (Husband and Wife Falls), but it becomes Oyako-daki (Family Falls) after rain when amount of water increases and the third line (Child Fall) appears between the marital falls. The waterfalls are therefore worshiped by the people who wants a baby and the god of safe delivery is enshrined there.
The falls are frozen and turn into icicles in winter.

I visit this waterfall at least four times per year. It is generally quiet on weekdays outside peak travel periods. It is quiet, cool and surrounded by maples. It is a power spot and many people claim to feel refreshed after visiting. During the hot summer months it is pleasant to walk throughout the shallow water near the base of the fall. If you are fortunate enough during your visit, the sun may hit the water at the right angle to produce a small rainbow.

Amazing little waterfall, it's always nice and relaxing by the water. Didn't get in the soba it was busy even thought it was early for dinner. Next time will sit and try their food, can't wait.
