This 133m-high, perpendicular waterfall is one of the sacred spots in the Kumano faith, based on prehistoric forms of nature worship, and is connected to the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage routes. The waterfall is also called Misuji-no-taki ('three streak waterfall') as its waters fall down from three mouths, which gather four waterheads originated from Mount Machi. In the upstream, there are a series of waterfalls, often called Nachi 48 Waterfalls, where moutain ascetics practice rituals and spells.
