It is also located next to GInga no Taki Falls. Spend some time enjoying the scenery, though waterfall is nothing spectacular. As this is a popular spot, expect bus loads of tourists visiting here. Overall, a recommended visit in Sounkyo.

We were there in June, took quite a while to find it but the water was not much so the waterfall wasn't too grand. Just a place for tourist to take picture as "I have been here" Both waterfalls are side by side with just different angle. Hope someone may see a grander view than what we saw.

If your intention is to view gushing waters, this may seem totally unspectacular. Small waterfall, that's not worth a detour unless you are driving or staying at the onsen hotels overnight, with nothing better to do.

Tried to climb up the stairs behind the carpark to get a better view of the twin falls, but the snow was very thick and there... More

We went in early dec and the twin waterfalls were frozen. despite that its still worth visiting. The winds are rather strong and place is very cold, minus 2 degree. You can take nice pictures.

The best time to head to Ginga & Ryusei falls is just after sunrise. The falls faces east ward and as the sun rises behind the hills, it lights up the waterfalls. Furthermore, everyone else is still sleeping or having breakfast in the hotels, so you have the entire place to yourself. If you are able to climb, there is... More

You can stop it for a while and take nice pictures, or go a bit walking with the stairs (if you are not afraid of moskitoes).
