One of my most enjoyable waterfall hikes, I mean, where else can you find 7 beautiful waterfalls within walking distance of one another? Each waterfall carries its own beauty and has its own characteristics. I love waterfalls and the variety in the colours, shapes and sounds was fascinating. When I went in February 2015, only 6 waterfalls were open to... More

Took a train to Kawazu. At the bus station outside the train station, bought a round trip ticket to Nanadaru Waterfalls. Got off the bus at start of the trail. Walked down the trail with wonderful view of six falls. (The seventh fall was not open to public.) Got on returning bus near the sixth fall.

Very nice walk to visit the waterfalls. Easy walk along paved paths with a lot steps on the north end. You may want to take the bus up and walk back to make it easier.

The waterfalls involve a 30min walk or so, it is quite easy to go to via bus from Kawazu bus station. Communication in english with station staff is limited but getting there is cinch. The waterfall themselves are quite something, ranging from 30m falls to 2m ones, but having 7 in a row, with rapids and a great mountain side... More

The place is easy to walk. During our visit, access to two of the falls was closed. We stayed in an excellent onsen hotel next to the falls. We didn't plan to visit all the falls and just wanted to have relaxing walk around the falls. And, we enjoyed it. The sound of the fall, the fresh air of water... More

I don't know how you're going to do it, but you have to research very, very well on how to get here, and allot enough time to see all seven of the waterfalls. I was in Kawazu for about three hours, spent half that time walking on the banks under the sakura trees from the train station, waited for a... More

Kawazu Nanadaru is a great place to see the countryside and enjoy nature. The seven waterfalls after which the town is named are in a series on a short walk uphill, but not difficult. The town is small, but has a scattering of nice onsen hotels. We're not onsen people, but we enjoyed the forest scenery and sounds of the... More

"Kawazu Seven Falls" in Kawazu Town, Shizuoka, Japan is one of my favorite tourist sightseeing spots in Japan. The arranged hiking trails will lead you to each falls without getting lost. Only 40 - 60 minutes to walk through. In summer, despite strong sunshine, you will feel very cool around the water. Many ryokans, souvenir shops and restaurants stand around... More
