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.
