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.

The water fall itself was stunning. The Walk way up in the mountains to the temple was amazing. You will surrounded by giant ancient trees.

It was beautiful but you have to pay 300 yen to get in. Park at the bottom. It is cheaper.

Make sure the weather is good and it's a great little hike. Bit out of the way though.
