World Heritage: Nachi Waterfall4.5
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.

Breathtaking place! Must visit. Not only because it is beautiful in any season with many things to see there, but because it is japanese sacred place. In a Kumano kodo route. We came there in cherry blossom season and it was good because not so much crowded, but can't imagine the weekend.
Many steps,really many steps, but it is worth. Cleaning the body and the mind before the pray is great thing to do.

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.
