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.

AMAZING WATERFALLS! The fall of the water is over 100 meters and it's really impressive. You can go quite close to it and make awesome pictures :D I absolutely recommend it!! There is a bus that stops near it and goes from Nachi Station. With the same bus you can go up to Nachisan also.

Beautiful. No words can describe the power of nature. It's still a place where worship and offering is done daily. You may pray here if you're a believer or be respectful.

Beautiful walk up to the grounds of the whole surroundings. Then you walk to the left down a hill to the falls passing yummy ice cream shops. After viewing the falls from the bottom we walked up to the three tiered pagoda which also has very picturesque views of the falls. It costs more to go in, and to walk closer up to the waterfalls, but not expensive.

Pretty amazing end of the kumano kodo trail. The scenery is just outstanding. No regret of doing that incredibly long and hard day of hiking to get here. Lucky enough to see the beginning of the cherry blossom as well. A pity the main temple was in restaurant ion when visiting (march 2018)

Stunning! Don't think twice, just come see this. The forest and the walks are beautiful, and the temples around are just as beautiful
