Went to the waterfall early in the morning, taking the train from Mito to Fukuroda and reaching Fukuroda Station at 8.45am. The first bus haven't started running yet and there were no taxis to be seen. The only way to the waterfall was a 45 minutes walk, which I did. The walk was pleasant and I saw many flowers, apple...

From the entrance, there is a long tunnel that lead to the falls. An end, there is a large elevator for an observatory. From an eminence the falls is magnificent! Around the falls, there are many souvenir shops and restrant. 入り口から滝へとつながる長いトンネルが待ち受けています。奥には展望台までの巨大なエレベーターが設置されています。(エレベーターには案内係が常駐しています。) 展望台からの滝の眺めはとても壮大でした(^-^) 滝周辺にお土産屋やお食事処が並び賑わっていました。 ※注 鉄道を乗り継いで行ったのですが、外の気温に比べてJR水郡線や滝に向かうバスが寒く感じました。東京方面の人は衣服を一枚多めに持っていくとよいです。津軽鉄道のストーブ列車が待ち遠しく感じました。

I visited this waterfall in early spring (March 2015). It's a great nature place. I think that mid Spring or autumn will be best time to visit this.

If you're in Ibaraki, then you have to go here. As everyone else has already said, the view was breath taking. Our tour guide said that the view changes according to the seasons and to come back 4 different times to witness the beauty of each.

The waterfall was magnificent. I loved the sound of the water splashing on the rocks. It was a small walk up to the waterfall. I expected it to be a hike. It was a pity I did not get to do some shopping in the Japanese traditional shops. I would've loved to tried their Dango

The waterfall is truly called "the No.3 waterfall of Japan" - it's absolutely worth seing. Keep the ticket in case you get out of the tunnel and thendecide to return.

This is one of the best 3 waterfall of Japan. It has 2 observation decks. I could see all of waterfall at upper deck, and feel so dynamic at lower deck.
