急段を下ると、虹の滝が現れます!(Small waterfalls but you may see rainbow)

河津桜まつりの河津川の上流にある、河津七滝(ななだる)。 河津町から車で北へ走って行くと、町立の無料駐車場がありました。 土曜のお昼前ですが、ほぼ満車。 さらに上流に水垂バス停から脇道に降りたところに、小さな駐車場があって、そこから釜滝(かまだる)にかなり急な斜面を降りて行く遊歩道がありました。 100段以上あるので、帰りがキツイですが、降りていくに... read more

河津桜まつりの河津川の上流にある、河津七滝(ななだる)。 河津町から車で北へ走って行くと、町立の無料駐車場がありました。 土曜のお昼前ですが、ほぼ満車。 さらに上流に水垂バス停から脇道に降りたところに、小さな駐車場があって、そこから釜滝(かまだる)にかなり急な斜面を降りて行く遊歩道がありました。 100段以上あるので、帰りがキツイですが、降りていくに連れ、期待が高まる感じです。 途中から木の階段があるので歩きにくいわけではないです。 釜滝の目の前にデッキがあって、水しぶきも浴びれます…。 でも、陽がてっていると、虹が観られるんですよ! 足が辛いですけど、ぜひ! 時間があれば、すべての滝を制覇しましましょう! There is one fall you may find after more than 100 steps down from a bus station (Mizutaru). If you are lucky, you may meet rainbow on the waterfall. Please look at the photo carefully... Ca you see the rainbow?

Start at Kawazu station and take the bus to the start of the waterfalls.. Normally you follow the other visitors because this is popular with locals. Waterfalls are spectacular especially in winter when there is a lot of water flowing down.

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
