Passed by the Twin Falls while we were on the way to the Sounkyo Ice Festival. There were many tourists. The Taki Falls was more prominent while the Ryusei Falls was not so obvious. 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).

The Ryusei-no-Taki is also known as the Shooting Star Falls, and is one of the two famed waterfalls in Sounkyo Gorge. According to my tour guide, apparently if you look at the falls at an angle, the water would appear to spew out, resembling a shooting star… I couldn’t really visualise that but anyway, I thought it still looked pretty...

Able to see water falls down from the mountain top since it's summer time. We were told by the guide that in winter time there might be only a small stream running down, or even all turn to be ice. It's not consider a gigantic fall but worth to see.

This place is filled with tourists and tough to get a clean shots. Not the most spectacular water fall though it's located between a valley.
