A short 5 minute walk from the parking lot by the campground. Lot of people doing Buddhist cleansing rituals under the waterfall which is interesting to see.

キャンプ場「sotosotodays CAMPGROUNDS」近くの駐車場から歩いて10分くらいです。車椅子で入るのは難しいですが、それなりにしっかりした歩道もあり、軽微な格好でも滝までなら簡単に辿り着くことができます。よく整備された場所です。

自然の力と 金太郎伝説との接点。
名前の由来は ちょっと疑問だが 四季を楽しめる場所なので 季節を変えて訪れたい。近くのキャンプ場で自然と触れ合うのも良さそう。
